Indians in Turkey are a small community numbering 300 and comprising roughly 100 families.[1][2] Most of them work as doctors and computer engineers or employees in multinational corporations.[2] India also has a small business presence in Turkey through representative offices of Reliance Industries, Tata Motors and Indorama.

Relations[edit]

Most Indians are Hindu and the community forms the bulk of Hindus in Turkey. In recent times, there have been efforts to promote tourism and culture from India as a means of developing the community and establishing better relations with Turkish society.[2]
