The External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi in a tweet on 19 August 2022 said that the 17th Pravasi Bhartiya Divas 2023 will be held at Indore, Madhya Pradesh in January 2023. Pravasi refers to the Indians who are working abroad(Non Resident Indians) or person of Indian origin who has taken up the citizenship of other countries .

The 16th Pravasi Bhartiya Divas was held in a virtual mode on 9th January, 2021 with the theme "Contributing to Atma Nirbhar Bharat". Chandrikapersad Santokhi, President of Suriname was the Chief Guest.

 Who organizes the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas

The Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is organised by the Ministry of External Affairs in partnership with a state government and an Industry body, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) or Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). 

It is normally organised on 9 January.

Significance of 9 January 

  • On this day in 1915 the greatest Pravasi of India, Mahatma Gandhi returned from South Africa  in 1915 from South Africa  to India .
  • His ship SS Arabia  docked in Bombay (now Mumbai)  on 9 January 1915.To honour and celebrate the occasion the government of India decided to start  Pravasi Bharatiya Divas  in 2003.

Reason for observing the Pravasi Divas 

  • One of the main reasons for organizing the Pravasi Divas was the success of China. Like Indians there are many overseas Chinese and one of the main reasons for the success of China was that many of the overseas Chinese invested in the country.
  • The Indian overseas diaspora is the largest in the world and many of them are very successful businessmen, technocrats and in positions of power in their respective countries.
  • Through the Pravasi Divas events the government of India wants to engage the overseas Indians and wants them to invest in India and make a meaningful contribution in India's economic development.

History of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas

  • The first Pravasi Bharatiya Divas was organised in New Delhi from 9-11 January 2003 and Sir Anerood Jugnauth, Prime Minister of Mauritius was the Chief Guest.
  • Since 2015, its format has been revised and now the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is held every two years.

Regional Pravasi Bharatiya Divas

  • To reach the vast majority of the overseas Indians who due to various reasons cannot attend the main event, the Ministry of External Affairs organises Regional Pravasi Bharatiya Divas Conferences.
  • The Regional conference focuses on a particular region of the world where there is a greater number of overseas Indians.
  •  So far 10 such conferences have been organised by the ministry. 
  • The first Regional Pravasi Bharatiya Divas was organised in New York, United States on 24 September 2007.
