There was an active participation not only from the students but from the faculty and staff too. The criteria for donating blood were that one’s weight should be at least 50 Kg; Blood pressure has to be normal and hemoglobin as 12.5. In this process many were disappointed, as they were not able to donate blood due to lack of some or the other above criteria.
