The Indian Diaspora constitutes a significant economic, social and cultural force in the world today. Overseas Indians estimated at over 28 million are spread across the world. Their industry, enterprise, education, expertise and economic success are widely recognized.
In order to renew and strengthen linkages of overseas Indians to their place of origin and with each other, GoI envisaged the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra which would emerge as the focal point for networking between India and its overseas Indian community; and as a suitable place which would commemorate the trials, tribulations, the evolution and achievements of the Indian Diaspora.
The Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra would be inaugurated by Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi on October 2nd, Gandhi Jayanti Diwas. The live telecast can be watched at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYK5_hH6U8k.
