In a congratulatory letter, the Dalai Lama said: "This is the 58th year of our life in exile. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of the government and the people of India, more than 130,000 Tibetans continue to make their homes in this country. We will always be grateful.

"No doubt you will do whatever you can to consolidate India's strengths so that she may provide the leadership in the world that her stature entails," said the Dalai Lama, who has lived in India since fleeing his homeland in 1959.

Kovind will assume office on 25 July when incumbent President Pranab Mukherjee's term ends.
