Dear Friends, 

As you are aware the 13th edition of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) convection will be held in Gandhinagar, Gujarat on 7th to 9th January, 2015. PBD 2015 is special for all of us as it is the centenary year of the return of Mahatma Gandhi from South Africa to India to lead us to freedom.

2. The 13th edition of PBD which seeks to bring the expertise and knowledge of overseas Indians on a common platform to benefit country's development process, will be a fitting tribute to the Mahatma. The Government of Gujarat will be the State partner of this event. 

3. The Convention will be formally inaugurated on 8th January, 2015 by the Hon'ble Prime Minister after "Pre-PBD events on the 7th January, 2015. The Valedictory address will be delivered on 9th January, 2015 and the Pravasi Bhartiya Samman Awards will also be conferred on the same day. Many eminent PIOs/NRIs and other important guests from India and abroad will be taking part in the convention. 

4. In order to celebrate the occasion in a befitting manner, it has been decided to have a Book Exhibition wherein the books of overseas Indian writers are to be kept for the benefit of the participants during the PBD-2015.

5. The High Commission of India will arrange to send the artworks through the diplomatic channels.
