Press Releases

Abhyuday, the social body of IIT Bombay aims at sensitizing the youth about social issues and creating a sense of social consciousness in them.

What business entrepreneurs are to the economy, social entrepreneurs are to social change. With prime minister Narendra Modi stating that Social Entrepreneurship is the key to speeding up our Amrit Kaal journey on the occasion of India@75, it has become even more clear that social impact activities are the need of the hour. As a part of their efforts to promote Social Entrepreneurship among the youth of India, they organize an Action Plan Competition, a 4-month long Social Entrepreneurship Competition which fosters young minds of the nation to identify grass root level problems and design a sustainable solution model for them. This nationwide competition takes participating teams through multiple stages, starting from identifying a problem through stakeholder interaction, progressing to engaging with stakeholders and organizations in developing a solution on the models outlined to validating these ideas in society for further improvement. 

Since its launch in 2012, Action Plan has witnessed tremendous growth in previous years. Action Plan is set to be India’s largest growing social Entrepreneurship Competition. 

Abhyuday started 9 years back with a group of socially inclined students who felt the need for a body that provides opportunities to the institute’s students who wish to work for a better society. Abhyuday 2022-23 brings to you “Action Plan: The Social Entrepreneurship Competition of Abhyuday, IIT Bombay” to help such start-ups convert their idea into a scalable business model. 

It revolves around the “3 I’s mantra: Ideate – Innovate – Implement.” Action plan is a 4-month long competition which happens in three stages.
