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?

Q1 हरियाणा के किसान की यह कहानी प्रेरणादायी है। उन्होंने पराली प्रबंधन को कारोबार का रूप दिया। उन्होंने एग्रो एनर्जी प्लांट और पेपर मिल से संपर्क किया और किसानों से पराली खरीदकर बेचने का काम शुरू किया। इसमें सबसे जरूरी था पराली को दाबकर इसके सघन गट्ठे बनाने वाले उपकरण ताकि परिवहन आसान हो जाए। उन्होंने कृषि एवं किसान कल्याण विभाग से 50 प्रतिशत अनुदान पर स्ट्रा बेलर खरीदे। अब तक वह हजारों क्विंटल पराली को बेच कर न सिर्फ आमदनी करी बल्कि पराली जलाने से पर्यावरण को होने वाले नुकसान से भी बचाया

Q4 Government proposes vocational training for school students in NEP 2020. Vocational training requires several equipment and skilled demonstrators. But schools do not have such infrastructure to give training. Even local ITIs/ Polytechnics do not have such facilities. School students can not be taken to Industries for these training as it may create safety related issues in industries. Government has to involve industries body to create such training facilities for such vocational training.

Q4 हम सुविधाओं के गुलाम हो गये हैं। हमें आत्मनिर्भरता से ज्यादा सुविधाएं चाहिए। अगर आयात बंद कर दिया जाता है तो यह संभव है कि कई वस्तुएं मिलनी बंद हो जाएगी और कई वस्तुओं के दाम में बढ़ोतरी संभव है। उस समय आत्मनिर्भरता का मुद्दा किनारे हो जाएगा और सब अखबार और टीवी चैनलों पर सिर्फ कुछ वस्तुओं की बढ़ी कीमतों का जिक्र होता है। राजनीतिक दल भी मैदान में उतर आएंगे। अभी भी प्याज के दाम में कुछ रुपयों की बढ़ोतरी होते ही ब्रेकिंग न्यूज चालू हो जाती है। सरकार को प्याज तक आयात करनी पड़ जाती है

Q4 Despite being the lowest consumption of various resources as compared to other developed countries, India is following global targets set for environmental related issues. Providing employment and fulfilling aspirations for increasing population and defending environmental targets are two conflicting matters. There has to be a trade off between development and environmental laws. Science-Society-Setu may reduce this divide.

Q3 Ancient Aryan settlement sites and Mahabharata period sites are being developed by Archeological Department. Some tourists may be interested in visiting these sites to study the history if proper infrastructure of reaching there and staying is made available in nearby villages. Tourists may discover not only our glorious past but also correlate some of existing village traditions and customs as old as the historic site. CBOs can develop their village portals to coordinate with tourists
