The Electrical Engineering Department organized Ratnadurg Fort Cleanup Drive in association with Jiddi Mountaineering, Ratnagiri on 27th January, 2019. This fort was constructed during the rule of Bahamanee and was captured by Adilshah. Later, Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj (Founder of Maratha Empire) took the charge of the fort in the year 1670.
The Government of India has launched a campaign ‘Swachha Bharat Mission’ from 2nd October, 2014 with an objective to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of cities, smaller towns and rural areas.
