The Indian government has developed a policy framework in relation to emigration, as well as to its diaspora. The government, indeed, has recognized the significant role played by its diaspora in several countries and has taken measures to integrate these with the country of origin. The attempts have been geared, inter alia, towards: encouraging foreign investment in India through its emigrants; extending voting rights to a certain category of emigrants; getting dual citizenship for Indian emigrants in many countries; organizing annual events such as Pravasi Bhartiya Divas to offer a formal platform for recognition of the achievements of men and women with Indian origins abroad; and setting up high level committees and advisory boards on the Indian diaspora.
