By Joseph Varghese/Staff Reporter The Indian embassy, along with the Indian Community Benevolent Forum (ICBF), would set up a helpdesk at Mesaieed this month, said Indian Ambassador to Qatar Sanjiv Arora. The formalities for opening the new centre were being completed, he added.

Arora further said a team of embassy officials would visit the suburban areas of Doha every Friday from March. "Every Friday, the embassy officials will go to a particular suburban town and interact with the people of the community. It will not only foster good relations among the community members, but also provide opportunities to learn about the real issues of the community and suggest solutions for the same," he explained.

Arora said the first visit - to Salwa - would take place today. "This will be followed by visits to Al Khor on March 15, Salwa on March 16, Dukhan on March 22 and Shamal on March 29," he added.

Observing that the weekly visits would promote further rapport with the embassy's activities, the Indian envoy said this would give people the opportunity to access consular services at their place.

The recent visit of an Indian delegation initiated by the Indian Business Professional Network (IBPN) was highly successful, he said, adding that there were a series of encouraging discussions with the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry (QCCI).
