Welcome to Build India Group

Build India Group is the brain-child of journalist-turned-lawyer Biraja Mahapatra who conceptualized the idea of a national pledge and festival as an instrument to strengthen the country and instill a sense of self-respect in every individual. Others who joined him in the endeavor and floated the Build India Group in 2006 were HR consultant Nabajyoti Das, journalist Sudha Passi, Gautam Basu and Avtar Nehru, media consultant Pankaj Sukhija, Advocate Nishant Datta, Kiran Kumar Patra and Shanmuga Patro. In 2008, Mahapatra wrote “MY CALL” – For the greater glory of this land, a book that provides the roadmap of his arm and objective to unite the nation in a unique way.
