26 Feb 2018
Government of India has launched a special initiative in the form of Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz (Know India Quiz) to generate interest among youth, both NRI as well as PIO to know and understand India.
2. This quiz will be open for overseas Indian youth between age group of 18-35 years. There will be separate categories for NRIs and PIOs. The first round of the quiz will be held locally in New Zealand in May 2018. The second round would be an online quiz conducted by Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi. The third and fourth rounds (Semi Final and Final round) will be conducted in New Delhi. Three winners each from both the NRI and PIO category in the first round will move to the subsequent rounds. All participants who make it to the third and fourth round will be invited to India and besides the quiz they would participate in a 15 day tour of India. The top three winners of the final round will be honoured and receive special awards at the Pravas Bharatiya Divas Convention 2019.
3. While the modalities of participation in the first round will be decided in the near future, the High Commission has been asked to start a publicity campaign immediately and start registering interest.
4. I would request you to disseminate this information personally as well as through your own social media platforms to members of your association as well as to friends in general. Please also share it with students in different institutes in your area and encourage them to register for participation. Government has set a target for each country. For New Zealand, the target of participation has been set at about 750 and we should combine our efforts to exceed the target. I look forward to your active support.
5. As an initial exercise, interested persons in the age category of 18-35 can send, on an immediate basis, to the High Commission their name, mobile no., email id, date birth, category (PIO or NRI) and one scanned document confirming age at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
