(ii) Extending emergency medical care to the overseas Indians, who are not covered by free National Health Service and have any other means;

(iii) Providing air passage to stranded overseas Indians,

(iv) Providing initial legal assistance to the overseas Indians,

(v) Expenditure on incidentals and for airlifting the mortal remains to India or local cremation/burial of the deceased overseas Indian in such cases where a sponsor is unable or unwilling to do so as per the contract and the family is unable to meet the cost.
