Indian Community

The Indian community is the fastest growing amongst the Asian communities

The Indian ethnic group comprised 155,178 people or 3.9 percent of people that stated an ethnic group living in New Zealand on 5 March 2013. The Fijian Indian ethnic group comprised 10,929 people or less than 1 percent of people that stated an ethnic group living in New Zealand on 5 March 2013

Previous census figures indicate that Fijian Indians were more prevalent than those from the Indian sub continent, however, this has altered recently with migrant patterns showing significant numbers from India directly. This increase in population is also supported by the huge diversification amongst the Indian community in terms of language with approximately 15 different dialects spoken, although English and Hindi tend to be the most widely spoken.

The Indian community have also got a number of print media options and a dedicated radio station which serves the purpose of informing the community about local and national news, international news and celebrating aspects of their culture such as music, religion and Bollywood. As a whole, the ethnic Indian community is likely to continue growing at its current rate, with Auckland seeing the majority of this growth. While other migrants may be affected by language requirements, given the continued prevalence of English in the Indian educational system, it is predicted that will be less affected by any major changes to immigration requirements.
