Consular section [fr]
The Consulate General acts as Registrar for French nationals resident in India: issues them with identity cards and passports, registers their births, deaths and marriages, enters them on the electoral rolls and organizes polling stations for major national elections, draws up notarial acts and ensures the protection of their rights vis-à-vis the Indian authorities.
It registers young men of French nationality living in India who reach the age of 18 and thus may be liable for French national service. In some circumstances, it also gives assistance to French nationals (scholarships, limited and temporary financial help).
It is also responsible for issuing visas pursuant to the Schengen Agreement to persons who require them.
