Malaysian Indian youth to explore IndiaOctober 3rd, 2008 - 2:49 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur, Oct.3 (ANI): Malay Indian youth may soon get a chance to explore India under the Know India Programme (KIP).
According to a report in the New Strait Times, applications have been invited for a three-week stay in Madhya Pradesh and Haryana.
Under the programme, students and young professionals of Indian origin from all over the world, will be able to share views, expectations and experiences with their Indian counterparts in a move to promote better understanding of contemporary India.
Although the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA) covers the cost of the stay in India, the applicants themselves will fund air travel on economy class to India initially.
The Indian High Commission will reimburse half of the return airfare after participants return to their home country with proof of purchase and their air tickets.
Youth of Indian origin from 32 countries, including Malaysia, have been invited to apply for this one-in-a-million opportunity.
Applicants must be able to speak good English.
Since the project started in 2004, 235 people aged 18 to 26 of various backgrounds have benefited from the experience.
Applications for the next trip, the 10th KIP visit, will close on October 15. (ANI)
