Is a general blood test enough to detect Bombay Blood Group?

Hi. My blood group, as last tested 10 years ago, is O positive. Its just today that I came to know about the Bombay Blood Group, and I want to find out if my blood group is Bombay O positive. I am a resident of Bangalore, India. Is a general blood group test enough, or is some special diagnosis required to detect the Bombay blood group?
