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

For acquiring new technologies, our policy for years have been to look abroad.
We feel proud to import items for daily use such as soap, tissue paper, ice-cream etc from abroad.
It is said world is global village and buy wherever it is available cheap while importing.
Time has come that we shall feel ashamed for importing anything without exploring availability of local make products or machinery.

चैप्टर 1.9 मे लाइब्रेरी के विषय मे लिखा गया है, मेरा सुझाव है की हर शहर मे पब्लिक लाइब्रेरी निश्चित रूप से हों तो आम जनो का ज्ञान विज्ञान मे रुचि बढ़े । हर तरह की समस्या का समाधान शिक्षा और ज्ञान है । पुस्तकालय ज्ञान के सागर माने जाते हैं । स्कूल मे भी पुस्तकालय सिर्फ दिखावटी न हों वास्तविक और सक्रिय हों, नई शिक्षा नीति के माध्यम से इसे प्रभावी बनाए । रिमोट एरिया के लिए चालित लाइब्रेरी की व्यवस्था की जा सकती है । उद्योगों के सी. एस. आर. मद का उपयोग पुस्तकालय विकास मे भी किया जा सकता है ।

गहन प्रौद्योगिकी आधारित शिक्षा प्रणाली के विकास हेतु हमें सरकारी स्कूलों में विज्ञान के प्रति नवाचार पैदा करने की आवश्यकता है प्रत्येक वर्ष हर स्टेट की राजधानी में एक प्रोद्योगिकी ओर नवाचार पर मेला का आयोजन होना चाहिए जहां स्टेट के प्रत्येक सरकारी स्कूल के प्रोद्योगिकी नवाचार आधारित मॉडल आइडिया की प्रदर्शनी लगे और जो सबसे अच्छा हो उस स्कूल को पुरुस्कृत किया जाए, बच्चों में भी विज्ञान के प्रति रुझान बड़ेगा, बेस्ट आइडिया मिलेगा, भारत भी आत्मनिर्भर बनेगा, स्वदेशीकरण को भी मजबूती मिलेगी।

ड्राफ्ट के पेज क्रमांक 2, पॉइंट 2 मे वन नेशन वन सबक्रिप्शन की बात कही गयी है जो स्वागत योग्य है । फिलहाल भारत मे पहले से ही उपलब्ध विज्ञान पत्रिकाओं को जन मानस को सहज उपलब्ध कराने का प्रयास करें। पॉइंट 3 के अनुसार ज्ञान का दायरा बढाया जाये, हर किसी को हर समय असीमित ज्ञान बिना किसी रुकावट के मिल सके इसके प्रयास हों । तिथि और परीक्षाओं की बन्दिशें कम से कम हों तो ज्यादा लोग लाभान्वित होंगे । ज्ञान का व्यवसायीकरण समाप्त हों । दूरवर्ती शिक्षा माध्यम को बढ़ावा मिले और पाठ्यक्रम को मान्यता प्राप्त हो

4.4. Ease of doing research: This is most complicated in India starting from inducting students,  recruitment, cases of plagiarism, lack of external organisation appraisal for researchers,  procurement rules, unnecessary expenditure  for AIRINDIA in travels leading to loss of budget and time, current trend of Internal People becoming directors,  etc.

 Chapter 5: Innovation and Entrepreneurship 

This is now seen as a topic of wasting time for organisations. Someone who has never led for  Entre

जरुरी नही की हर बार हर विषय मे अपनी राय रख सके पर हर बार भाग ले सके तथा विज्ञान के इस सुचना क्रांति के युग मे अपनी भगीदारी भी निभा पाये और हर बार कुछ नया सीखने को मिलता है विज्ञान के आयोजन वैज्ञानिक सोच को जन्म देते है
