It will generate a profound sense of pride and unity as we collectively celebrate the prowess of Indian science and technology. It will contribute to fostering an environment of scientific inquiry and innovation,” Higher Education secretary K Sanjay Murthy said in a letter to all heads of all education institutions.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) also made a similar request to HEIs on Tuesday. The UGC called it a significant step forward for Indian Science, Engineering, Technology and Industry.
