Hello,

He may apply for further to leave to remain on the basis of long residence and private life on the basis that he has lived in the UK for over 20 years. He needs to apply on form FLR(O):

He will first need to obtain a valid Indian passport so that a UK residence permit may be granted to him.

May I help further?
