A new apex body representing NRKs has demanded the establishment of a tribunal to settle property-related cases currently before various civil courts across the country.

Representatives of Pravasi Malayalees Property Protection Movement(PMPPM), representing nine pravasi Malayalee organisations, told a press conference here that the ‘’archaic’’ Adverse Possession Clause of the Limitation Act be replaced with a ‘’workable and fairer law.’’ ‘’The foremost objective of PMPPM is to restore equity and fairness to thousands of non-resident Keralites who lost their dwellings and other inherited assets and are engaged in court battles in and outside Kerala.

We are planning to organise seminars, conferences and other programmes to sensitise the public about the terrible plight faced by NRKs in their own state,’’ said Savy Mathew, representative of Federation of Malayalee Associations of America (FOMAA), one of the nine organisations. 

The joint declaration was signed by the respective leaders of the nine associations and the launching of new flag and logo of the new organisation was held at the news conference.

 FOMAA, World Malayalee Council (WMC) and Indian Pravasi Action Council (IPAC) are among the nine organisations that have come together to form PMPPM.
