Release of Draft 5th National Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy for public consultation

As India and the world reorient in the present context of the COVID-19 crisis, a new Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy (STIP) was initiated at this crucial juncture during mid-2020. For India to march ahead on a sustainable development pathway to include economic development, social inclusion and environmental sustainability for achieving an Atmanirbhar Bharat'', a greater emphasis may be needed on promoting traditional knowledge systems, developing indigenous technologies and encouraging grassroots innovations. The emergence of disruptive and impactful technologies poses new challenges and simultaneously greater opportunities. The COVID-19 pandemic provided a compelling opportunity for R&D institutions, academia and industry to work in unison for sharing of purpose, synergy, collaboration and cooperation.

The new Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy aims to bring about profound changes through short-term, medium-term, and long-term mission mode projects by building a nurtured ecosystem that promotes research and innovation on the part of both individuals and organizations. It aims to foster, develop, and nurture a robust system for evidence and stakeholder-driven STI planning, information, evaluation, and policy research in India. The objective of the policy is to identify and address the strengths and weaknesses of the Indian STI ecosystem to catalyse socio-economic development of the country and also make the Indian STI ecosystem globally competitive.

The new policy, STIP, revolves around the core principles of being decentralized, evidence-informed, bottom-up, experts-driven, and inclusive. Also, it aims to bring in the concept of dynamic policy with a robust policy governance mechanism incorporating features such as implementation strategy, periodic review, policy evaluation, feedback, and adaptation, and most importantly, a timely exit strategy for various policy instruments.
Keeping above in view, a STIP policy document ver 1.4 has been finalized and placed here after a detailed 4 track process of consultations during last 6 months beginning from May 2020. The process so far involved nearly 300 rounds of consultations with more than 40,000 stakeholders well distributed in terms of region, age, gender, education, economic status, etc. The STIP Secretariat was coordinated, supported, and guided by the Office of PSA, NITI Aayog, and DST. The formulation process, by design, envisioned as a very inclusive and participative model with intense interconnectedness among different tracks of activities.

Your suggestions, inputs and comments on the draft STIP will be invaluable towards finalization of the policy document. We shall be grateful if you could find time to go through this draft and share your thoughts on the proposed STI policy latest by Monday the 25th January 2021 on email: india-stip[at]gov[dot]in

विज्ञान का उपयोग अगर शिक्षा के क्षेत्र में किया जाए तो हमारे देश मे सुधार जल्द मुमकिन है, आज कोरोना प्रभाव के कारण बच्चों को ऑनलाइन शिक्षा दी जा रही है मगर, क्या यह देश के शिक्षा से वंचित छात्रों मे से 25 प्रतिशत की संख्या को मिल रही है? लगता नही। इसलिए और विस्तार ज़रूरी है। विज्ञान का ही नतीजा है कि 25 फुट से ऊंचे नारियल के पेड़ को 8 फुट की ऊंचाई का बना पहले से ज़्यादा पर्याप्त मात्रा मे उपज देना, आश्चर्य लगता है। देश के किसी भी क्षेत्र मे हर प्रकार की फसल कैसे मिल सकती है विज्ञान ही संभव है।
