Fr. Nicholas Dias here from Delhi Archdiocese & Chaplain for Federation of All-India Anglo-Indians (FAIAI), originally from Benaulim-Goa.
Kindly send your representative at 4 pm. PRESS RELEASE for Saturday, April 15, 2023) The leaders of the Federation of Anglo-Indian Associations (FAIAI) in India, along with Rev. Fr. Nicholas Dias, Chaplain for Anglo-Indians, who is originally from Benaulim-Goa, met His Eminence Cardinal Filipe Neri Ferrao, President of the Council of Catholic Bishops in India (CCBI). The leaders sought the help and support of the Cardinal in identifying and reorganising Anglo-Indians in various parishes in the country. In the circumstances the representations in Parliament and State Legislatures for Anglo-Indians were snatched away by the unreasonable attitude of the Central Government on the pretext that 'According to census report of 2011 the number of Anglo-Indians are only 296 and they are well off ', the Federation of Anglo-Indian Associations in India is on an effort to conduct a survey to ascertain the number of Anglo-Indians in the country. By the intervention of Rev. Fr. Nicholas Dias, several Anglo-Indians have been identified in the Archdiocese of Delhi, and the Federation wants the support of CCBI to extend this into other areas of the country.
