The Indian Embassy and five of its consulates in the United Stares have decided to hold a fortnightly open house beginning from January to resolve the problems of Indian immigrants with regard to passport, visa and OCI (Overseas Citizens of India) card.
The Press Trust of India quotes Navtej Sarna, Indian Ambassador to the US, as saying on 4 December that this open house initiative would begin from the first week of next month in the Indian Embassy.
Speaking to hundreds of Indian-Americans gathered in Greater Washington area, he said that embassy officials would address their grievances. Sarna said that they would notify on their website the day and time where people having problems could walk into the embassy and discuss their problems with the officials present there. A similar practice would be put in place at all their consulates in America, he added.
He took this opportunity of praising the part played by the Indian Americans in strengthening the ties between India and the US. Sarna also emphasised the need to bring in second generation Indian immigrants in order to encourage them to play a vital role in strengthening Indo-US bilateral relations.
