Answer for GLA Offices in India I

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are no current plans to end the representation in Mumbai. The LDA representative in Delhi left in early 2009 and the work was covered by the Mumbai office. The representative in Mumbai left later in the same year and measures are now being taken to ensure that London continues to maintain an appropriate presence in India. The LDA is currently investigating how best to address this matter. At present the LDA maintains its registration in India but does not have office space in either Mumbai or Delhi.
