Development of the Movement

In 1948 India was welcomed as a separate member of WAGGGS, having been a Founder Member of the World Association, together with present-day Pakistan and Bangladesh, under the name of India, in 1928.

The Girl Guides Association (India) joined together with the nationally recognized Joint Movement in 1951, shortly after India became a Republic, to form the Bharat Scouts and Guides (Bharat being the ancient name for India). Guides and Scouts take part in jamborees, camp fires and other special events together.
