External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar on April 15 stated the Indian authorities have been monitoring the institution of the American Consulate in Bengaluru. 

“We are tracking the establishing of the consulate. What I heard from the American side is that they have to go through certain process where they have to source it and get approvals. I think that They are moving along that,” Mr. Jaishankar instructed media individuals in Bengaluru. 

“I am there to constantly remind them that this consulate has to be done quickly. Because I tell them that whenever you set up the consulate, I would like to come here on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Setting up the consulate was the request which the prime minister had made when he had gone to the U.S. last year,” he stated. 

“Setting up of U.S. consulate in Bengaluru is an achievement particularly as a Foreign Minister. Certainly when I come to Bengaluru, it is an achievement that I should talk,” he remarked.

The U.S. will open two new consulates in Bengaluru and Ahmedabad whereas India will set up a mission in Seattle to spice up people-to-people relationships, a senior White House official had stated in June 2023.

India has 5 consulates within the U.S. in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta, aside from the embassy in Washington.

The U.S. embassy in New Delhi is among the largest US diplomatic missions on the planet. The embassy coordinates the actions of 4 consulates — in Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad — making certain that the U.S.-India relationship is robust all through the nation, based on the data on its web site.
