New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: Every year, the Non-Resident Indian (NRI) Day is celebrated on January 9 (today) to mark the contributions of Indians residing overseas in the development of the nation. NRI Day 2021 is also observed to commemorate the day when Mahatama Gandhi returned to India from South Africa in 1915 and led India's freedom struggle. 

Also known as Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, the first NRI Day, is observed on January 9, 2003, and Pravasi Bharatiya Samman was given to prominent Indians in overseas who contributed to the development of the nation. In 2009, the concept of Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) was launched which allows people of Indian origin and their spouses to live and work in India indefinitely. This year, the theme of NRI Day 2021 has been set as "Contributing to Aatmanirbhar Bharat”.

So to mark the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2021 or the NRI Day 2021, here are some messages, wishes, quotes and greetings to share with all the NRIs who are contributing in taking the nation forward and are helping in its development.
