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
● MSME
● Economic Sector
● Social Infrastructure
● Cross-sectoral Areas

To contribute to the discussion and participate in the Web Clinic, get registered http://indiascienceandtechnology.gov.in/registration

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).

Q4. What are the social and economic challenges and constraints faced in adopting existing or indigenous technologies?

Q2 Our focus shall be logistics associated with storage and distribution of agricultural production. A lot of grain is rotten every year due to exposure to rain and is eaten away by rats. A big proportion of fruits and vegetable produced have to be thrown away due to lack of transportation. With new emerging technologies, we shall keep track of stock position of items at each centre and real time monitoring of goods on move through Kisan Rails and GPS enabled vehicles on roads.

Q1 When I look at machinery at agri machinery store, I am surprised at the workmanship and feel how that equipment would work. There doesn't seem to be any standard of manufacturing and no safety concerns for the person operating that equipment. It can be understood that they take the advantage of unawareness of farmers about Quality or Safety aspects. Quality and Safety aspects of Agricultural Machinery has to be improved. Technology in agri machinery manufacturing has to be upgraded

The seas are not mingled with each other. But it will touch only. Their salty differed. Its living things going to otger sea but it will retun to own. Birds flyall over tge world but cone their own. Insects animals go everywhere comeback to own. Plants shrubs all planted from one place to other it reflects it own place in taste and medicine. But human only go abroad foe bread but staying there forget and dislike own place facing problems. BrainHook True proof tech will stop it.

Q1 MSME can set food processing units near villages for consumable agriculture production. Due to changes in life style, there is good demand for ready to eat products in market. These processing units can not only help in farmers selling their produce nearby thus saving transportation cost but may also relieve them of worries of uncertainties in finding market for their produce. They can even have an agreement with the companies beforehand.

Q1 किसानों से 2 रुपए किलो खरीदी प्याज शहरों में 80 रुपए किलो बिकती है। किसान सस्ते में बेच कर रोता है और खरीदार महंगा प्याज खरीद कर रोता है। जब दोनों रोते हैं तो खुश कौन होते हैं? किसानों के लिए अब नए कानूनों ने मंडी व्यवस्था से मुक्ति दिला दी है।अब समय आ गया है कि पैदा करने वाले किसान उपयोग करने वाले उपभोक्ताओं को सीधे माल बेच कर ज्यादा कमाई कर सकते हैं और आम जनता भी राहत महसूस करे। किसानों को थोड़ी जानकारी और जागरूकता की आवश्यकता होगी। कहां कितने माल की जरूरत है और कैसे जल्द माल पहुंचाया जाए

Q1 Existing technological resources can be pooled at village level so that small and medium size farmers can avail the benefit of these. For example every farmer need not invest in buying tractor or other costly machinery used in farming. It is not just buying but he has to invest in maintaining such gadgets. These can be made available at panchayat level or some cooperative organization. Farmers can pay according to size of farm and avail the facilities.

Q1 Science and technology can be used to give correct long term weather forecast before the sowing season starts. It can save farmers labour in preparation of farms and seeds. Many times farmers sow the seeds after the first rains but subsequently the rain fails. It results in wastage of labour and seeds. But if the weather forecast is available, farmers will make preparations for ups and downs in rains pattern and save themselves from the huge losses.

Q1 One of the biggest challenge is to maintain the viability of agricultural sector. Despite many technological advances and government supports in providing subsidies in inputs and in MSP, farmers always complain of losses. It is because when there is bumper crop, there are no takers. MSME can create chain of local storages of produce to save farmers from throwing away the produce. Farmers can hold the crop and sell the produce later when the prices in open market are stabilized
