President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday called upon the scientific fraternity to work in a "time bound manner" for a science Nobel Prize for India.
He pointed out that it has been "83 long years" since C V Raman won the Nobel Prize for Physics. "Another Nobel Prize in sciences is long overdue for India," he said at the inaugural session of the 100th Indian Science Congress.
He stressed that India should emerge as a major knowledge power with high human and societal values.
