The Dubai Desi is a community portal for Indians residing in Dubai. This a interaction platform with content contributed by the subscribers with the sole intention of informing and sharing.
The site terms are therefore kept very simple and clean of legal jargon as we dont really want to take anything to the court.

This website is hosted in the USA by an ISP company in India, and with editorial control in Dubai. The contributors are Dubai residents but the site is open to anyone interested in Dubai and Desis.
Ok, so here it goes, and please don’t fall asleep reading them.
