Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz

Origin

The idea to launch an online Quiz competition, aptly named “Bharat Ko Janiye” to enhance spread of knowledge about India, came from the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi during his address at the the 13th Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas Convention held on 8 January 2015 in Gandhinagar. The principal objective behind introduction of the Quiz contest was to generate interest amongst the young Indian diaspora and overseas Indians so that their cultural and knowledge connect with India was maintained even while residing abroad.

1st & 2nd Editions of the Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz

  1. In pursuance of PM’s announcement, the Ministry of External Affairs organized the 1st edition of Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz for young overseas Indians (two categories i.e. PIOs and NRIs) in the age group of 18-35 years in 2015-16. The 2nd edition of 'Bharat Ko Janiye' (BKJ) quiz was held in 2018-19 and a new category of Foreign Nationals (FNs) was created to participate in the quiz. The BKJ Quiz was opened up to foreign participants as well because it was equally important to share India’s rising profile and stature with foreign youth as well. The 2nd edition of 'Bharat Ko Janiye' quiz saw participation of 50,000 participants in 2018-19.

3rd Edition of the BKJ Quiz

Registrations from participants are invited for the 3rd edition of the Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz through the https://www.bharatkojaniye.in portal from young overseas Indians in two categories i.e. PIOs and NRIs as well as foreign nationals in 2020-21.
