For the realization of the Hon PM Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, we need to develop Science & Technology (S&T) interventions that identify the problems that lack resolution and provide suitable solutions. We need to develop & promote locally-driven enterprises & services that resolve to work for a better quality of life.

For the same, the Science for Equity Empowerment and Development (SEED), Division of Department of Science & Technology (DST) are working towards bridging the above gap by creating a virtual platform Science-Society-Setu for Aatmanirbhar Bharat (S34ANB).

This initiative intends to align Technology, Knowledge, Skills and Resources at local levels to strengthen the pillars of ‘Social Infrastructure’ and ‘Technology Driven System’. It aims to reform a systemic, planned, integrated, inter-connected & futuristic process through technological interference and ease of doing business at a local level to achieve self-reliance.

The initiative is an online platform for collaborations between the solution seekers and solution providers. The web clinics will highlight emerging technologies and their utilities to augment the technological self-sufficiency for grass-root requirements. The Web Clinic is inclined towards identifying new ideas and partners for evolving SEED schemes directed towards indigenous technologies and effective delivery mechanism.

During each session, the panel of experts would provide a feasibility report on (i) possible forward linkages between NGOs/CBOs & knowledge institutions and (ii) guidelines to way-forward. The resulting ideas and recommendations will be supported through SEED Division of DST for participatory action research projects through its ongoing schemes/programs or in collaboration with other relevant divisions and funding agencies.

The virtual interaction series Science-Society-Setu for Aatmanirbhar Bharat is being launched, implemented and managed using India Science, Technology and Innovation (ISTI) Web Portal of Vigyan Prasar.

The initiative is being jointly organized by DST, in collaboration with the office of the Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA), Vigyan Prasar, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI), Accelerating Growth of New India’s Innovations (AGNIi), World Wide Fund for Nature India (WWF-India), and Himalayan Environmental Studies and Conservation Organization (HESCO).

The Web Clinic will primarily focus on five sectors of Aatmanirbhar Bharat namely:

● Agriculture and allied sector
● Economic Sector
● Social Infrastructure
● Cross-sectoral Areas

To contribute to the discussion and participate in the Web Clinic, get registered

Individual viewpoints & inputs are invited on the following questions through this Discussion forum. Please mention Question Numbers while discussing.

Q1. How the indigenous/existing agricultural technologies are viable or can be made viable by harnessing Science, Technology, and Innovation for responsible and consumable agriculture production?

Q2. How the emerging technologies in the agriculture and allied sectors can augment the technological self-sufficiency for grass-root requirements?

Q3. The rationale of the initiative is to reach out to the man sitting in the last strata. Please share your ideas about advancing the Science & Technology capacity of community-based organizations (CBOs).

I found expired food snacks in the pockets besides it shown the expiry forthcoming date. If we made a complain the shop keepers not taking and giving tort answer. I said him just you pass my complain to the salesman. Be the mediator.he denies and putting blame on me only. The pockets were being packed already but they print the expiry date at the time of supply to the shops. For stoping this please search one of the plantroot in oldendays. By using it make the food cover.

Pollutions problem மரும் வகையில் தீபாவளி நேரங்களில்/ மற்ற நேரங்களில்Tyre எரிப்பதைத் தடுக்க கிராம்ப்புற படிக்கும் படிக்காதவர்கள் வரை tyre எரித்தால்் அந்த ஏரியா மக்களுக்கே fine rs5000 per family வசூலிக்கப்படும் என்ற சட்டம்வரவேண்டும். Village/city govt private hospitals இருக்கும்இடங்களில் தீபாவளிநேரம் பண்டிகைகொண்டாட்டங்களில் பட்டாசு வெடிக்கும்போது newborn babies பயப்படுகிறது. Parients தூக்கம் ஓய்வில் தொல்லை தருகிறது. இதற்கு அரசு தடைச் சட்டத்தோடு தண்டப்பணம் சிறை அடைப்பு வரணும்.

Ours is a very strange country. We have every known minerals available on earth. We have all the knowledge to extract these. We have every technology available to make use of these. We have no shortage of young work force to do this job. We have the talent and experience to guide them. Still we have to import several raw materials and so many products from other countries. None of previous governments had given a thought before this to make #AatmaNirbharBharat.

हमे निम्नलिखित कार्य करने होंगे
१.किसान को आत्मनिर्भर बनाना:हर गांव में गौचर भूमि अनिवार्य करना जिससे किसान अपने पशुओं के चारे के लिए आत्म निर्भर बन सके।हर गाँव मे तालाब की सुविधा जिससे जमीन कभी न सूखे।value addition भी सिखाना।
२.हर दफ्तर में एक corruption officer हो जिक्सक ट्रांसफर हर 3 महीने में होता रहे ।इससे सरकार की नीतियों को लागू करने में आसानी होगी।
३.हर बड़े शहर में research institute खुले जिनमे वैचारिक कौसलता के आधार पर भाग लिया जा सके न कि शैक्षिक योग्यता
विज्ञान के लिए गांव चलो
