Consulate General of India

Date: 06.08.2020

         On the 74th Independence Day of India on 15 August 2020, the Consulate wishes to inform all members of the Indian community and the friends of India that on account of the restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, the celebrations of the upcoming Independence Day would be streamed digitally in the spirit of respecting the social distancing norms laid down by the Italian Government.

While we understand your desire to stand as a proud member of the Indian community during the hoisting of the National Flag and the singing of the National Anthem on this auspicious occasion, we would unfortunately have NO public gathering at the Consulate for the aforesaid purpose this time. We hope that the situation will normalise soon and we would be able to celebrate our Republic Day on 26 January 2021 in a manner befitting the occasion.

The flag hoisting and the reading of the address of the Hon’ble President to the nation will be streamed on the social media platforms of the Consulate.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
