About Us

The NRI Nation is a digital news platform catering to the Non-Resident Indian (NRI) population worldwide.

Currently incubating at the Harvard Innovation Lab, we document news and information that concerns India and the Indian diaspora worldwide.

We have no political affiliations. We seek to present the news without bias and offer a wide range of analysis and opinion pieces.

We also highlight developments from Indian communities throughout the diaspora and thus serve as a global focal point for the NRI world – informing and engaging the Indian diaspora worldwide.

The NRI Nation aims to provide constructive analysis and insights regarding the challenges faced by the NRI population.
