1.The government on Thursday announced its decision to merge the ministry of overseas Indian affairs (MOIA) with the external affairs ministry in keeping with its broad principle of minimum government, maximum governance.

2.Vikas Swarup said the decision to merge the MOIA with MEA was taken in line with government’s “overall objective of minimising government and maximising governance”.

3.Swarup said the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, which used to be a flagship event of the MOIA will be celebrated by the MEA on January 9.

4.Since creation of MOIA in 2004, there have been two separate ministers in charge of the two ministries. However, since 2014 Swaraj and minister of state in MEA V K Singh were handling both the ministries, said Swarup.
