DUBAI -  15 Aug: An Indian worker in Qatar has sued the company he was working for for cutting his salary after allegedly forging his signature on his job contract.

Chandra Mohan, working for a Qatari bottled water company, has alleged that the company has not only forged his signature on the job contract but also put his signature on the visa renewal application and identity card, according to a report in the Peninsula newspaper.

He said this while participating in an open house session organised by the Indian embassy in Doha last Friday.

"I have moved the court against the company and now they are willing to have an out-of-court settlement," Mohan, 52, was quoted as saying.

Hailing from Kerala in India and a resident in Qatar for the last 21 years, Mohan alleged that when he joined the company two years ago, his salary and commission worked out to 3,000 Qatari rials (QR), but he was paid QR 900 for one whole year.

He alleged that when the company came to know early this month that he had approached the court for justice, it threatened to repatriate him.

Mohan then got in touch with officials of the Indian embassy in Doha after which police ordered the company not to disturb him.

"I am staying in the company accommodation but have no work. I am idling away my time and surviving on loans taken from friends."

He said the company offered him QR 15,000 as an out-of-court settlement. But Indian ambassador to Qatar George Joseph, who was presiding over the open house session, advised him against taking it, according to the newspaper report.
