DBT has played a pioneering role in developing the R&D ecosystem in the country at par with the global ecosystems. While DBT laid emphasis on the research ecosystem, it created an industry interface called BIRAC (Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council) to promote the translational research and entrepreneurship in the biotech domain in the country.

BIRAC was incorporated in 2012 as a not for profit company under the aegis of DBT, to strengthen and empower the emerging Biotech enterprise to undertake strategic research and innovation, addressing nationally relevant product development needs.

DBT should pave the way for next Green Revolution in India. BT is so powerful that it can even change the course of evolution itself. In Indian scenario BT should help the ancient science of Ayurveda to become a global alternative to western medicine.

Intention and idea for new initiative are good, as it has always been but due to inefficiency in the system that would be entrusted to implement these initiatives/scheme and lack of effective strategy in place, this scheme is destined to yield dismal result if being modest and not say fail. My question is why to waste huge amount of tax payers money before issue related to gross inefficiency and in-competencies in your system. First run a scheme to fix these issues and run such scheme.

नमस्ते।मैं कृष्णा,ज्योतिषशास्त्र में शोधरत । मेरा सवाल यह है कि जिस ज्योतिषशास्त्र का सहारा लेकर अमेरिका,इंगलैंड,जर्मनी इत्यादि देशों में सफल शोध कार्य किया जा रहा है उसे अपने ही देश में क्यों उपेक्षित किया जा रहा है। क्या भिन्न भिन्न क्षेत्र के वैज्ञानिक,चिकित्साविद्,मौसम वैज्ञानिक,ज्योतिषशास्त्र के जानकार के साथ मिलकर कार्य नहीं कर सकते। ?अगर ये साथ मिलकर कार्य करें तो समाज के लिए बड़ा हितकारी होगा।
क्या सरकार से इस क्षेत्र में समर्थन मिलने की उम्मीद की जा सकती है ?

नमस्ते।मैं कृष्णा। पिछले 10 सालों से ज्योतिषशास्त्र के क्षेत्र में शोधरत हूँ। कई देशों के निकलने वाले medical journal articles में medical astrology की चर्चा की जाती रही है प्रख्यात डॅाक्टरों द्वारा।यहाँ तक की अमेरिका के Cecil book of medicine में ग्रहों की चर्चा है। जिस बात की चर्चा हमारे यहाँ के पुराणों में है और उसपर अमेरिका,जर्मनी,इंगलैंड के विश्व विद्यालयों में इसपर शोध कार्य किया जा रहा है तो इसे अपने देश में क्यों नहीं समर्थन प्राप्त हो रहा।सरकार की उदासीनता का कारण बताएँ।
