Pravasi Bhartiya Diwas

The govt of India organizes this event every year. I would like to understand whats the objective of an event like this. Is it plain networking or any business gets done here? more

Thank you for finding my comment useful.
I think what PBD should do is have a Dept. that will
1. Listen to NRIs who want to introduce a project where the NRI is making no money, but spending their money to improve facilities e.g.
1.harvesting water
2.providing solar energy where there is no electricity, and for those who have it to reduce their elect. costs.
3.Manuf. of REVA electric cars tried to reduce pollution by introducing electric car, but it never caught on.
4. Fuel efficient Nano gives less pollution than motor bikes, yet motor bikes and Scooties are increasing in No.
5. Odd even was used to get publicity, as it is not implemented for 365 days.
I am sure there are more suggestions from more NRIs & MEA
6. FINAL REQUEST IS TO ORGANISE IT IN DEHRA DUN, I wait for the day it happens. more  
It brings together mainly NRIs who get in touch with local business H.q.s, I attended one of them in Delhi.After that I tried my best to get PIO& OCI streamlined. M.E.A. did not help me when I asked a simple question, why one member of family gets OCI in Kenya, & other sister is refused in UK, & why 1 brother gets it in Glasgow, & other is refused in London, both in U.K. So I did not find it useful, except MODIJI HAD A CURRAGE TO CHANGE PIO TO OCI.. more
