We, the Bharat Vikas Parishad, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) established in 1963 is a service-cum-sanskar oriented, non-political, socio-cultural voluntary organisation. It is dedicated to the development and growth of our country in all fields of human endeavour-cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual by promoting a sense of patriotism, national unity and integrity. On the birth centenary of Swami Vivekananda i.e. 12th January, 1963, the Citizens Council set up by leading industrialists and social reformers like late Lala Hans Raj and Dr. Suraj Prakash, initially to mobilise citizens efforts to fight the Chinese attack, was renamed as Bharat Vikas Parishad is thus motivated and guided by the ideals and teachings of Swami Vivekananda. Our vision is development and growth of Bharat, in all fields of human endeavour-cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual-culminating in “Swasth-Samarth-Sanskrit Bharat” i.e. physically, economically and morally strong India. Our mission is to organise the elite, intellectuals and the well-to-do citizens and to motivate them to serve our poor, disabled, illiterate and ignorant brethren not as an act of charity but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition of service as duty.The chapter of Bharat Vikas Parishad, Chandigarh is running a Charitable Medical Centre in Indira Holiday Home, Sector 24-B, Chandigarh since 21st October, 1991.
