National Science Day is celebrated in India on the 28th of February every year. It is celebrated to mark Sir CV Raman’s discovery of the phenomenon of scattering of photons. This was later called the “Raman Effect” and Sir C.V. Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for this discovery in 1930. To honor this great discovery the National Council for Science and Technology Communication (NCSTC) requested the government to designate this day as National Science Day.
