  • Chitra Rajora asked: What is India's diaspora policy in Central Asian countries?

    Meena Singh Roy replies: There is no specific Indian diaspora policy in Central Asia. As compared to Indians living in the Gulf, the United Kingdom (UK), the European Union (EU) and the United States (US), the number of Indians in Central Asian Republics (CARs) is quite less. There are around 19,490 Indians (7,800 in Kazakhstan, 8,100 in Kyrgyzstan, 1,550 in Tajikistan, 240 in Turkmenistan and 1,800 in Uzbekistan) out of a population of about 75.3 million in CARs.
