October 05, 2018

            The Know India Programme of the Ministry of External Affairs is a three-week orientation programme for Indian diaspora youth (18-30 years; excluding NRIs) conducted with a view to promote awareness on different facets of life in India and the progress made by the country in various fields e.g. economic, industrial, education, science & technology, communication & information Technology, culture. KIP provide a unique forum for students & young professionals of Indian origin to visit India, share their views, expectations & experiences and to develop closer bonds with the contemporary India.

          The portal enables Indian-origin youth to apply online for KIP programmes. The Ministry will examine applications recommended by  Embassies/Consulates and select the final list of candidates who are eligible to participate in KIPs. This year i.e. in 2018-19, we will organise six KIPs with participation of 40 overseas Indians in each programme.
