industrialist Lord Swraj Paul has been honoured by a non-profit NGO for his outstanding efforts to highlight the profile of Non-Resident Indians and their contributions to India.

A spokesman of the Institute said on Wednesday that it honoured Paul, Chairman of the Caparo group of industries, here on Monday at an event held to celebrate its 30 years.

Receiving the plaque, Paul, 87, said "Mahatma Gandhi Honour - to be associated with Mahatma Gandhi's name makes me very proud of being Indian and British. I am pleased to make Indians realise what service has done for India."

Paul was Knighted by the British Queen in 1978 and became the Lord Paul of Marylebone and a member of the House of Lords.
