CV Raman received the highest civilian award of India, Bharat Ratna, in 1954.

He was awarded the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics

The objective of celebrating National Science Day is to propagate the importance of science and its application among people.

In 1986, the NCSTC asked the Government of India to declare February 28 as National Science Day.

The Government of India accepted the proposal and declared the day as National Science Day. The first National Science Day was celebrated on February 28, 1987.

The theme of National Science Day 2022 is ‘Integrated Approach in Science and Technology for Sustainable Future’.

NCSTC of the DST is the nodal agency to support and coordinate celebration of the National Science Day.
