'Jano Apna Rajasthan' plan for NRIs

 The Rajasthan Government will launch a new scheme ‘Jano Apna Rajasthan’ to familiarise second generation non-resident people of the state with its culture. 

The reception organised by RANA and New York chapter of Rajasthan Foundation at Bombay Palace was attended by over 60 prominent Rajasthanis, including RANA founders and its former presidents. Rajasthan Foundation was set up in 2001 by chief minister Ashok Gehlot, with the objective of strengthening bonds with non-resident Rajasthanis for outside investment, to work in social sector, education, health sector and tourism. It will soon open doors for next generation of Rajasthanis living abroad not just to witness the culture and traditions but also experience the progress made by the state in infrastructure, technology and transportation in an all-expenses paid trip. “The chief minister had emphasised on the need of the next generation of overseas Indian to be brought to the country and their native villages and exposing them to our rich culture and traditions.
 It was announced by the chief minister at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Jaipur but on August 15 it will be formally launched,” said Rajiv Arora, vice chairman of Rajasthan Foundation. Arora emphasised to RANA members that the next generation children be frequently brought to their homeland.

At least 20 people aged between 18 and 28 will be selected to visit Rajasthan in December.
