WITH the aim to motivate overseas Indian youth to develop an interest to know and understand India, India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) is organizing the second edition of ‘Bharat Ko Janiye’ (BKJ) quiz.
The online quiz is open for overseas Indian youth and foreign nationals between the ages of 15 and 35 as on January 1, 2019 (born not before January 1, 1984, and not after January 1, 2004).
The quiz will be held for three distinct categories of participants – Non-Resident Indians (NRI), Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) and Foreign Nationals.
The top 10 finalists in each category (PIO, NRI and Foreign National) will be selected on the basis of marks secured in the second round and they will be invited to participate in the third round (semi-final) and the fourth round (final round) in New Delhi.
All participants, who are invited for onsite round, will attend the workshop in New Delhi and participate in the Bharat Ko Janiye Yatra, a 15-day tour of India, including Lakshadweep. The Government of India will bear the international airfare and all expenses including hotel accommodation (4-star hotel on twin sharing basis), local transportation (by AC vehicle on twin sharing basis), boarding and lodging for quiz participants during their stay in India, and airport-hotel-airport transfer during arrival and departure from India.
