The Public Relations Society of India (PRSI) is the national association of public relations practitioners and communications specialists in India. It functions primarily for professional development. It seeks to formulate and interpret the objectives and potential of public relations as a socially useful function and uphold its value as an integral part of management. It also maintains close links with the academic bodies for the promotion of public relations as a subject of management studies. 

PRSI came into being as an informal body in 1958 with its headquarters in Mumbai. The genesis of the Society in Kolkata can be traced to 1965 when Sanat Lahiri, Shanker Mitra, R. P. Gupta, Prasanta Sanyal, J. M. Kaul and other pioneers of the profession formed a nucleus known as the Public Relations Circle. However, this was formally merged with the national body in 1968 to strengthen the public relations movement on an all-India basis. 

The promotion of professionalism has been high on the agenda of the Kolkata Chapter right from its inception. To provide an academic foundation to the profession, it has brought out a number of monographs on various subjects in the field of public relations and communications by distinguished practitioners.
