Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Government Holkar Science College, the biggest science college in the state, is going to organise Dr SS Deshpande National Award Ceremony and a national seminar on October 6 and 7.

The award will be given years 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.

College principal Prof Suresh Silawat stated that the accolade is for work in the field of chemistry, and is named in memory of Dr Deshpande, a devoted professor and diligent researcher. “Deshpande’s remarkable contribution had spanned from 1920 to 1975, during which he served the institution wholeheartedly,” Silawat said.

The award was introduced in 2011, which happened to be International Year of Chemistry.
