The NRIs whose contributions in India’s growth have been recognized based on a set of parameters will be honored with the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award in 14 categories.

Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is held on January 9, the day when Mahatma Gandhi, the most influential speaker and leader in the history of Indian National Movement returned from South Africa to India, with a mission to free India from the British rule and a vision to unite Indians. Since 2003, PBD (Non-resident Indian Day) has been a unique occasion for the NRIs, Indians and the Government of India to come together for mutually beneficial initiatives. It helps them build a network among themselves.
