Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat (EBSB) is one of the major flagship programmes of the Government to bring in cultural integration of the country as a part of the vision to build a "New India by 2022". The MHRD is the coordinating Ministry for these activities under EBSB.


India is a unique nation, whose fabric has been woven by diverse linguistic, cultural and religious threads, held together into a composite national identity by a rich history of cultural evolution, coupled with a rousing freedom struggle that was built around the tenets of non-violence and justice.

To promote national integration, sustained and structural connect between denizen regions of India, “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat" was announced by Hon'ble Prime Minister on 31st October, 2015 on the occasion of the 140th Birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
