New Delhi: Scheduled visit of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the United States in September has made Indian-American community keen to chip in with funds for India’s infrastructural growth.

Modi government has been asked to issue “Vibrant India” bonds by the US-India Political

Action committee (USINPAC), an organization of the Non-Resident Indians (NRIs).

The representatives of the group will visit India and engage with the Indian government.
