Bharat Vikas Parishad India – Overview

Bharat Vikas Parishad – An Organizational Overview

Established in 1963, Bharat Vikas Parishad is a service-cum-sanskar oriented, non-political, socio-cultural voluntary organisation. It is dedicated to the development and growth of our country in all fields of human endeavour – cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual – by promoting a sense of patriotism, national unity and integrity. Our Vision is “Swasth-Samarth-Sanskarit Bharat”.

Our Mission is to organise the elite, intellectuals and the well-to-do citizens and to motivate them to serve our poor, disabled, illiterate and ignorant brethren not as an act of charity but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition of service as duty.

On the birth centenary of Swami Vivekananda i.e. on 12th January, 1963, the Citizens Council set up by leading industrialists and social reformers like late Lala Hans Raj and Dr. Suraj Prakash, initially to mobilise citizens efforts to fight the Chinese attack, was renamed as Bharat Vikas Parishad (BVP). BVP was registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act 1860 on the 10th July, 1963. Bharat Vikas Parishad is thus motivated and guided by the ideals and teachings of Swami Vivekananda.
