Events organized under ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’

Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (AKAM) is an initiative to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive independent India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements. This Mahotsav is dedicated to the people of India who have been instrumental in bringing to India its evolutionary journey and those who envisioned a new India, energised by the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat.
