Miss India Worldwide, Past Winners

ABOUT MISS INDIA WORLDWIDE

The IFC (Indian Festival Committee) is a pioneer organization in conducting Indian pageants and fashion shows in the USA and worldwide. The committee has also been conducting the Miss India New York and the Miss India USA Pageants annually since 1980.

In 1990, Mr. Dharmatma Saran, Chairman and Founder of the IFC, decided to take the pageant one step further to an international level and started The First Miss India Worldwide Pageant. For the first time ever, Asian-Indian communities from all over the world came together in New York for this event. The pageant was an instant success and was acclaimed as ‘the most glamorous Indian function in the world.” To the best of our knowledge, no other ethnic organization has ever conducted a pageant of this magnitude on an international level.
