Mahatma Gandhi was the first Pravasi (traveler) who left an impeccable mark in the history of the world. Every year selection is made by the Board of NRI Welfare Society of India, New Delhi, for outstanding services, achievements, and contributions made by Global Indians in their respective fields in the country of residence and also in the service of wider global community in the international arena with community projects and international philanthropic endeavors.

Dr. Mehta was presented the award by United Kingdom’s Junior Minister of Energy and Climate Change, Honorable Baroness Sandip Verma. Several dignitaries attended the ceremony in which 30 NRIs from around the world were recognized. All delegates were given a personal tour of House of Lords and House of Commons.

Dr. Mehta feels privileged, honored, and humbled by receiving this prestigious award.

He will certainly look forward to continuing his local and international medical and charitable work towards the assistance of others in need and sync with the spirit of this award.

He thanks everyone for all the good wishes.
