About Us

The Indians in London Group is a platform to connect with the Indian diaspora in the UK.

The group was originally formed in 2004 on the social network website Orkut and later, in 2012, transitioned onto the current platform on Facebook. We are also popularly known by our acronym “IIL” or “IIL Orkut” group.

From a small group of Indian expatriates and students in London, today, the group consists of over 10,000 members and is growing every day. We truly represent the British Indian diaspora in London & the Home Counties. Though some of our members have moved out of London or even UK, they still continue to participate in the group and contribute remotely. The group has helped to forge many new bonds; strangers have become friends, friends have become best friends and quite a few have found their soul mates and life partners here.

Whether you are an Indian citizen or a Person of Indian Origin or have an interest in ‘Incredible India’, we welcome you all to the Indians in London Group. This is an independent, not-for-profit platform to connect with others on social, cultural, educational, economic, political and charitable matters. We don’t have any political, religious or regional affiliations and steer clear of these divisions.
