With the ever increasing rise in cases pertaining to fraudulent attempts at acquiring French citizenship, French Police Commissioner Fabrice Grossir, attached to Homeland Security Attaché of the Embassy of France in New Delhi, is in Puducherry to conduct a training course on fraud detection.

The Consulate General of France in Puducherrry  recently drew the attention of the French and Indian authorities to the dubious practices for acquisition of French citizenship, orchestrated by intermediaries who cheat Indian families in the Union territory.

To tackle this situation and strengthen cooperation with the Indian police, French Ambassador in India Francois Richier had sent the Commissioner, according to a statement from French consulate, Puducherry.

There was an increase in fraudulent documents in the last three to four months, sources said. Certificates including, birth, death, marriage, age, employment, salary are found to be fraudulent.

 Use of forged documents for official purposes is punishable under the laws of both India and France.

The Consulate General of France in Puducherry is ready to assist those who who want to legitimately claim French citizenship in accordance with relevant regulations. Using intermediary networks is of no help in this regard, the release said.
