New Delhi, Oct 6 (IANS) India will soon finalise a social security agreement with France for its citizens living in that country, Overseas Indian Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi, who is on a European visit, has said.

Ravi, who held discussions with the French Social Security and the Family Minister Philippe Bas in Paris, said the deal would be finalised in January during bilateral discussions in the Indian capital.

The minister discussed certain irritants in the double taxation avoidance agreement between the two countries.

'Many Indians complain they have to pay double taxes in France. The minister has handed over a draft for an agreement on social security for the Indians in France,' said a statement from the overseas Indian affairs ministry.

'The minister also indicated that most of the provisions in the draft form were acceptable to the French minister and the final decision would be taken in the January meeting.'

There is an agreement on avoidance of double taxation between India and France.

Ravi also urged the French government to strengthen its trade relations with New Delhi.

According to overseas Indian affairs ministry, Bas will visit India soon.

Ravi also met Indian students, members of Indian Professional Association and non-resident Indian employees of UNESCO in Paris.
