Birth of HKNS

At Wardha conference in November 1947, a resolution was passed to change the name of BELRA. An interim association named Akhil Bharat Kusht Samiti was formed to look after the transformation of BELRA into a new body. After two years on 19 August 1949 the HIND KUSHT NIVARN SANGH was formed based on its recommendations got registered with Registrar of Societies under Societies Registration Act. 1861.
