Pathfinders Club of India is a socio-cultural club which was founded on the eve of India’s 50th year of Indian Freedom i.e. on 14.08.1997 by the then students of the National Museum Institute, National Museum, New Delhi.

The result is a common platform ‘Pathfinder’s Club of India’. Although the society was formed on 14.08.1997, the club was duly registered with societies registration act in 1999 only.
Soon after the inception of our club, the Club organized one cultural programme along with NDMC in the premises of Sandhya Old Age home Naoroji Nagar on the occasion of birth anniversary of 23.01.21998. The function was attended by our founding Patron Dr. (Late) G.N.
