Indians in France are expatriate residents of France from India, as well as people of Indian national origin. As of 2000, there were an estimated 65,000 Indians living in metropolitan France, in addition to 300,000 Indians in the French overseas departements of Réunion, Guadeloupe, Martinique and French Guiana.


A majority of the Indian community hails from Puducherry and Chandannagar, the former French colonies in India. Later arrivals to mainland France were mostly Gujaratis and Indians from Mauritius, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, the Seychelles, Réunion, and Madagascar.
