Launch of Portal for Know India Programme 

On 17 June 2017 EAM inaugurated a portal for Know India Programme (KIP), the Ministry's flagship initiative for engagement with young overseas Indians. The portal www.kip.gov.in enables Indian-origin youth to apply online for KIP programmes. 

This year i.e. in 2017-18, we will organise six KIPs with participation of 40 overseas Indians in each programme. 

The schedule of KIPs has been finalised and can be seen online. Indian-origin youth can submit applications online for the following first four KIPs to be held in 2017 i.e. 41, 42, 43 & 44:
