This process is led by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India. Conference organizers are responsible for supporting this process and for communicating with conference delegates. The process involves four steps:

    A registration desk will be available to finalize this on site, but you may experience significant delays. To avoid any delays at the conference, please complete your registration and submit full payment prior to September 31st, 2016, 23:59 IST.
