India's Union Cabinet gave its approval on Friday for the signing of two Social Security Agreements - one between India and The Netherlands, and the other between India and Germany.

The Social Security Agreement with The Netherlands would provide for the following benefits to Indian nationals working in The Netherlands:

  1. For short term contracts up to 5 years no social security contribution would need to be paid under Dutch law by the Indian detached workers provided they continue to make social security payments in India.
  2. Indian workers will be entitled to the export of the social security benefit if they relocate to India after the completion of their service in the Netherlands.
  3. The above benefits will be available even when the Indian company sends its employees to the Netherlands from a third country.
  4. Self employed Indians in the Netherlands would also be entitled to export of social security benefits on their relocation to India.

The Social Security Agreement with Germany would provide that for Indian nationals working in Germany under short term contracts up to 48 months no social security contributions would need to be paid under German law by the detached workers provided they continue to make social security payments in India.
