East Indian Remarks
Requirements for "East Indian Catholic" Remark in the Baptism Register
In order to get the "East Indian Catholic" remark entered in the Remarks Column of his/her Baptism Register, the person concerned could directly approach the Chancellor at Archbishop's House with a letter, addressed to the Parish Priest of their Church of Baptism, requesting him to add the "East Indian Catholic" remark in the Remarks Column of his/her Baptism Register.
Along with this letter, he/she should also carry with the following documents:
1) The original certificate from either the "Mool East Indian Sanghatna" or "The Bombay East Indian Association" stating that he/she is a member of that Sanghatna or Association. Alternatively, he/she could get a letter from any priest who knows him/her and could vouch that he/she is an East Indian.
2) The original or a xerox copy of one's Baptism certificate.
Please note that both, the Baptism Certificate as well as the original membership certificate, will be returned to the parties.
