Chandigarh: Keeping in mind the safety measures and social distancing norms, the staff of Government Home Science College celebrated the 74th Independence Day.

Principal of the college, Prof. Sudha Katyal appreciated the efforts of our frontline warriors and paramedic staff during these times but specifically mentioned the vital contribution of Class 4 workers of the college and everywhere including chowkidars, aayas, malis and drivers without whom it would have been very difficult to keep the things going in these testing times.
