To the Members of the Antwerp Indian Community
To the Fellow Indians citizens in the Flemish Provinces

Antwerp January 10, 2021

Dear Friends,

Please note that I have an important announcement for you.

After 13 years serving as your H. Consul General in Antwerp, I have recently tendered my resignation to His Excellency the Indian Ambassador in Brussels, Mr. Santosh Jha.

In a letter that I received from His Excellency on Christmas Eve, He has acknowledged receipt of same and he also expressed understanding for my voluntary resignation.

Indeed, I have reached the age limit of 80 years and my physical condition does not really allow me to fulfil the many honourable tasks (some very visible, however many not visible) of a consul general of a fairly large community of Indians or persons of Indian origin residing over here in the Flemish provinces.

The matter is now with the Government in Delhi.

I would like to reiterate my heartfelt appreciation and respect for the many members of the Indian community I had the pleasure to meet in the past years. For me it always was a great honour and pleasure to be at service to the members of the Indian community and to the Republic of India. I’ve always appreciated the friendship and warmth I have received by so many of you. And of course, I will try to stay in close contact with the members of the Indian community in Antwerp.

Till such time that my successor is appointed, whom I will certainly help with the start-up, I have to refer you to the consular services section of the Indian Embassy in Brussels. Have a look at the website of the Indian Embassy to find out the details.

For Indian passports and miscellaneous consular services the phone number is 026451865 and the email address is: [email protected] and for OCI services telephone number 026451866 email address:[email protected]

For emergency cases there are two telephone numbers:
Mr Ajit Prasad, attaché, 0032-47674 8575 (for passports)
Mr Mohit Gambhir, Assistant consular officer, telephone number 0032477772949,
for Visa and OCI services.

I want to finish this present announcement by extending my very warm and best wishes for all of you and your family members for a healthy prosperous and happy New Year 2021!
