Back to India is a community-driven project where both returnees and aspiring returnees come together and share information we know to help each other make the move.

We have private Facebook, Telegram, and WhatsApp groups for every major city in India.

All these groups include NRI folks who have already made the move, are in the process of moving, or planning to move at some point.

Return to India City Groups

These city-based groups are intended to promote discussions that are locally relevant and significant to the place and may not fit the larger, broader group.

Ex: Sharing experiences about school admissions in a city, getting first-hand reviews about a local apartment, etc.

This way we can keep the focus on high-level topics on the main groups.

  2. Farming (Folks who wanna pursue farming after returning)
