National Technology day
The day was first observed on May 11, 1999. The day was chosen because on this day India successfully broke into the elite group of countries with nuclear weapons. On 11 May 1998, India successfully conducted three nuclear tests at Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in Rajasthan. With multiple technological advancements accomplished on the same day, the Indian government declared May 11 as National Technology Day. It was officially signed by then-Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The theme for 2022 National Technology Day is “Integrated Approach in Science & Technology for Sustainable Future”. The theme was launched by Union Minister Jitendra Singh
