The Raktdaan Amrit Mahotsav was started on September 17.

"More than 2.5 lakh people have voluntarily donated blood under the Raktdaan Amrit Mahotsav," said health minister.

"The success of Raktdaan Amrit Mahotsav has strengthened the noble cause of humanity which will help immensely in saving many precious lives. Blood donation is a noble cause and given our rich culture and tradition of Seva and Sahyog, on the National Voluntary Blood Donation Day, let us all pledge to be always there for someone else and donate blood regularly," he added.
