Please ascertain whether you can marry your niece, a french national in France. Section 163 of french civil code prohibits a marriage between uncle and niece.
Secondly, please contact your university in India and also your friends in your similar case pursuing higher studies in France. For the current year the admission of students in french universities is over, You can prepare yourself from now and submit for the next academic year necessary papers and copies of degree and mark lists with translation to the concerned french University,in Jan. 2015 It is a difficult task. You have study also french language Yours sincerely.

Maran- about fr.India
The regions which were under French rule are Pondicherry (capital), Karaikal in Tamil Nadu,, chandernagar in West Bengal, Yanam (in Andhra Pradesh near Kakinada) and Mahe (in Kerala near Tellicherry) and in addition some "loges" of which one is now called Franspeta" in Masulipatam, Andhra Proades, another near Calicut in Kerala. As a mark of good will, France handed over to Indian Union the french loges soon after India got Independence. Chandernagar in west Bengal separated from French India and merged with Indian Union in 1949. Thereafter in 1954 there was a defacto transfer of the remaining 4 towns of French India to the Indian Union on o1.11. 1954 followd by a dejure transfer on 16.08.1962 under Franco Indian treaty of 1956 which came into force on 16.08.1962. French India excluding Chandernagar, is now the Union territory of Pondicherry. Please find also some geographical details. Puducherry, original name Putucceri, formerly (until 2006) Pondicherry, also spelled Pondichéry, union territory of India. It was formed in 1962 out of the four former colonies of French India: Pondicherry (now Puducherry) and Karaikal along India’s southeastern Coromandel Coast, surrounded by Tamil Nadu state; Yanam, farther north along the eastern coast in the delta region of the Godavari River, surrounded by Andhra Pradesh state; and Mahe, lying on the western Malabar Coast, surrounded by Kerala state. The territory’s capital is the city of Puducherry in the Puducherry sector, just north of Cuddalore.
