A separate ICWF (Indian Community Welfare Fund) account is now being fully operational w.e.f 01.12.2015. An amount of €2/- for ICWF was included as service charge for all the services provided (i.e Visa, Passport, OCI & misc services etc.). Henceforth, applicants are advised to submit two separate Bank draft/Postal Order one for visa/passport/OCI/Misc charges and another for €2/- for ICWF which may be paid either in Postal Order/Bank draft. Both the Bank drafts/Postal Order should be in favour of the Indian Embassy.
