Speaking as a chief guest at the 72nd Independence Day celebrations at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan on Wednesday, the high commissioner said the unit had been set up in the consulate to help problems faced by Indians living in the UK as quickly as possible. 

"Your High Commission is a phone call away. We want to take the service to the doorstep of people in the UK," she said.

"She took the lead to give better services to the people - whether they are living in India or abroad," the Indian envoy said, adding that Swaraj was one of the tallest leaders of India in the recent past.
