Indian labor working in Kuwait is getting a minimum salary of about KD 140/- that makes around 31666.835 INR. If you are working with a company that covers all other government fees like Civil ID & Insurance then it just fine but you will be hand to mouth there.
Engineers and other professionals are getting much higher salaries though. One KD is about 220 INR that makes a good amount but not good enough to survive easily.
Always keep in mind these agencies come to India if they need cheaper labor on the other hand European people are getting much higher than that. People always want to see Kuwait currency rate in Indian rupees before traveling for work here.
On the other hands, as you know they have lifted the ban on Pakistanis and the currency is almost half to India and hence you will find huge competition here also. Calculate each and everything before accepting and declining an offer. If you get offered KD 140/- and other fees like Resident permits, accommodation, food allowances, medical is covered then you can think ti grab this opportunity until unless you are not a skilled person. Make sure with this you cannot afford any luxuries here in Kuwait.
