The Rotary Club of Gold Coast is celebrating the achievements of Rotarian Pushpinder Oberoi who was awarded the prestigious humanitarian Hind Rattan Award for 2023 ( translated into English as "Jewel of India") recently in India, the only recipient of this award from Australia. 


Pushpinder Oberoi, Justice of Peace, President of GOPIO Gold Coast and Multicultural Ambassador of Queensland for Mental Health Foundation, has been honoured with Global Humanitarian Award for his work in Thurrock during the coronavirus lockdown, during which he worked to help ease the pressures of isolation and organised several ‘treats’ for local people and international students in need of food and financial assistance.


The award was presented by the NRI Welfare Society of India which was started with the objective of strengthening the emotional bonds between India and Non-Resident Indians.

Pushpinder has been a community leader on the executive committee of the Indian Association in the Gold Coast, receiving the award for his multicultural community service, social welfare and business activities.  Pushpinder received this award for his involvement in maintaining an emotional bond between India and Non-Resident Australians, as well as for maintaining a great bilateral relationship and understanding with India and overseas. Pushpinder is also the Australian Country President for the NRI Welfare Society of India.
