MEA to organize “Know India Program” to familiarize Diaspora youth with India’s culture

New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs is organizing the next edition of “Know India Programme” (KIP) to familiarize Indian Diaspora youth with India’s culture, heritage and also with contemporary India.

KIP will be for a duration of 25 days, of which participants will spend nearly 10 days in a select State. The focus of the next KIP will be ‘Maharashtra State’, and is scheduled from 05 May to 01 June, 2016. The highlight of this tour would be a chance to experience a journey onboard the luxury train ‘Deccan Odyssey’.

This program is open for Indian origin diaspora youth in the age group of 18-26 years. Preference would be given to PIOs who have not visited India so far.

Completed application forms should be submitted by Indian diaspora youth to concerned Indian Missions/Consulates by 7 April. Selected participants have to purchase their flight ticket for their journey from the country of residence to India and back, as per the schedule shared. Concerned Indian Mission/Post would reimburse 90% of total cost of air ticket (at lowest economy excursion fare) to participants on successful completion of the program by them.
