Small Scale Projects

The German Diplomatic and Consular Missions in India operate a programme which enables them to provide direct financial assistance to Indian and Bhutanese NGOs and religious institutions for the implementation of small-scale projects for the benefit of disadvantaged groups of society.

This programme is funded by the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin and is implemented through German Diplomatic and Consular Missions abroad.

The German Embassy in New Delhi annually disposes of a fixed budget for the support of small, but self-contained projects, located in the Embassy's jurisdiction, which consists of: Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, New Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand as well as Bhutan.

For projects in other states of India please check the websites of the competent German Consulates General in:
