Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) is being celebrated on 9th January every year since 2003 with the initiative of the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to mark the contribution of Overseas Indian community in the development of India. January 9 was chosen as the day to celebrate this occasion since it was on this day in 1915 that Mahatma Gandhi, the greatest Privacy, returned to India from South Africa, led India’s freedom struggle and changed the lives of Indians forever. These conventions provide a platform to the overseas Indian community to engage with the government and people of the land of their ancestors for mutually beneficial activities. These conventions are also very useful in networking among the overseas Indian community residing in various parts of the world and enable them to share their experiences in various fields.
