He was Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples from 2006 to 2011. Cardinal Dias previously served as Archbishop of Bombay from 1996 until 2006.

He was created a cardinal in 2001 by Pope John Paul II, and as such voted in the papal conclaves that elected Popes Benedict XVI and Francis.
