The presence of British or Irish people in India is significant due to historical ties, cultural exchange, and business opportunities. Many British or Irish expatriates live in India for work, particularly in sectors such as technology, education, and healthcare. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and appreciate the rich traditions, spirituality, and diverse landscapes of India.
In the event of the most unfortunate circumstances, should an individual from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, or any non-native origin pass away in India, Rosy International's India team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai or any other specified location in India.

Why repatriate a body/ashes back to India?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to India, especially if they were just visiting the UK or Ireland. In such cases, we strongly advise reaching out to the travel insurance company as they typically provide financial assistance. Other reasons why you may prefer repatriating your loved one back to Afghanistan include, India has a diverse cultural and religious landscape. Burial practices vary among different communities and religions, but many individuals choose to be buried in India to fulfill religious obligations, be laid to rest near their families, and honor their cultural traditions. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

Please be aware that repatriating a body to India, usually requires the deceased to be an citizen or originate from India.
