NRI Division

A good number of Gujaratis have traditionally gone abroad and have settled there permanently. They have acquired wealth as well as knowledge and skills about the latest developments all over the world. They are keen to use their knowledge, skills as well as wealth for the betterment of their homeland. Although, the NRIs made certain efforts on their own initiative in the fields of development, education and investment in Gujarat, there was no formal and organized link between the NRIs and the Government of Gujarat.

The need for such a link was keenly felt by the Government. Such a link should be on a permanent basis and, hence. it was felt that there should be a Division/Cell to start with. This division/cell will receive requests/proposals and ideas from the NRIs. It will be promptly looked into by the Government. Necessary follow-up steps will have to be taken. Since speedy and coordinated approach is of paramount importance to deal with this matter, it was decided that there should be an NRIs Division under the General Administration Department of the Government.
