Honours the contribution to the field of mathematics made by Srinivasa Ramanujan.

National Mathematics Day in India, recognises Srinivasa Ramanujan's extraordinary contribution to the science. 

Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician who lived during the British Rule in India. Though he had almost no formal training in pure mathematics, he made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions, including solutions to mathematical problems considered unsolvable.

This day is observed on the anniversary of his birth on December 22nd 1887.

This day is observed to raise awareness about the significance of maths in our day-to-day lives.

The day was first declared on February 26th 2012, by the then Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.                           

Following that, he visited Madras University to pay tribute to Ramanujan’s achievements for his 125th birth anniversary. Since then it has been celebrated on December 22nd annually.
