The Pravasi Bharatiya Diwas 2022 was celebrated in Jakarta, Indonesia. A programme was organized by the Embassy of India, Jakarta on 9th January 2022 in the Embassy auditorium. Being a Saturday, it was expected that a number of members of Diaspora would visit the premises. However, to follow the strict COVID protocols imposed by the host Government, the invites were required to be limited to 150. A link was opened to all Pravasi Bhartiyas and their families. Event was a huge success and was attended by a full house maintaining strict covid protocol implemented by the local Govt.
