SIH (Smart India Hackathon) is a nationwide initiative to provide students a platform to solve the pressing problems of society, organizations, and government. It aims to inculcate the culture of product innovation, problem-solving and out-of-the-box thinking among students. The growing popularity of SIH can be gauged from the fact that the number of teams registered for SIH has seen a four-fold growth from around 7500 in the first edition to about 29,600 in the ongoing fifth edition. This year, it is special as more than 15,000 students and mentors travelled to the 75 nodal centres to take part in the SIH 2022 grand finale on the occasion of 75th Year of Independence. Students from over 2900 schools and 2200 Higher Education Institutions tackled 476 problem statements from across 53 Union Ministries in the finale.
