The Consul General, accompanied by his spouse, inaugurated the new VFS centre in Pune on Monday, 27th February.
Located, in Viman Nagar, one of the centrally located areas, this centre will serve to hasten the visa appliation procedure and simplify the logisitcs involved for those wishing to explore Europe and particularly France.
The Consul General interacted with the press before the inauguration.
"I am very happy to inaugurate this new centre that represents a significant qualitative and a quantitative jump for us in Pune. I am sure that the Pune residents must be happy with this upgrade. This is a much awaited expansion as nearly 6000 visa applications came to us from Pune in 2016, a jump of 260% YOY. But I am happy to say that we are in a position ot accommodate this increase and welcome it.. VFS and the Consulate General of France in Bombay has always shared cordial relations and will continue to remain so.. this day is testimony to it. "
