In other cases, the Ministry of Home Affairs makes a request on the basis of an assurance of reciprocity to the concerned foreign government through MEA or our Mission/Embassy in that country.

The difference between the two categories of countries is that the country having an MLAT with India has an obligation to consider serving the documents, whereas the non-MLAT countries do not have any obligation to consider such a request.
