About Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav(AKAM)

Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements. This Mahotsav is dedicated to the people of India who have not only been instrumental in bringing India, thus far in its evolutionary journey, but also hold within them the power and potential to enable Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of activating India 2.0, fuelled by the spirit of Aatmanirbhar Bharat.

The official journey of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav commenced on 12th March 2021 which started a 75-week countdown to our 75th anniversary of independence and will end post a year on 15th August 2023. Various events have been planned and organized to celebrate India’s 75th independence and PRL’s platinum jubilee. Our activities include but not limited to Science Popularization, Outreach Activities, Lectures, Webinars, Cultural Events, Sports Events, and Public Awareness Programs at the Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad and its campuses (Thaltej, Udaipur and Mt. Abu), ensuring public participation as well. A specific committee for Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav (CAKAM) is taking care of all these activities.
