In this series, we will be organising similar events with other ministries too.” Deka is also a member of the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA).

The event will also see participation from many well-known faces of the legal industry such as Mr. Tushar Mehta, Solicitor General of India, Justice Vikram Nath, Mr. Vikas Singh, President of Supreme Court Bar Association, Dr. Anju Rathi Rana, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Law and Justice, Mr. Singhi, MD and CEO of Dalmia Bharat Ltd among many others.
