These ecclesiastical units are served by approximately 143 active diocesan ordinaries (bishops/archbishops), 4 coadjutor (arch)bishops, 9 active auxiliary bishops, and 34 retired bishops.
For details (including the names and locations of all the bishops), please consult the Internet site of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India.
