Importance of Digital India



Mckinsey has come out with a report on the impact of digital transformation on China.


Internet is not merely a tool for automation and efficiency; it also expands markets rapidly. Greater adoption of web technologies in China could lead to the introduction of entirely new products and services if government and industry take the right steps to maximize the potential.

The Internet’s impact on productivity and growth could fuel some 7 to 22 percent of China’s incremental GDP growth through 2025, depending on the rate of adoption. That translates into 4 trillion to 14 trillion renminbi in annual GDP in 2025.

Same contribution is possible in India. Digital India programme spread over many years, can contribute to 20% of India's incremental GDP. Indian GDP currently about $2 trillion can reach up to $7 trillion. This means, digital India can contribute up to $1 to 1.25 trillion by 2025. Digital India requires that new products are produced, new skills are learned by Indian engineers and graduates and many new innovations take place.
http://www.mckinsey.com/industries/high-tech/our-insights/chinas-digital-transformation

Internet of thins is an important new development in this regard. It is expected to contribute $11 trillion by 2025 to global economy.How much of it will be produced in India is an important question.

60 - 20 - 20 Rule in Educational Institutions



In educational institutions there are three important entities. Learners, Faculty, and Administration. 60% of the responsibility rests with the learner. 20% is the contribution of faculty members. 20% is the contribution of administration which determines the curriculum, textbooks, and infrastructure for the learning activities.  Faculty members help in providing a schedule to the learning activities, in making students read and listen for the first time to the material covered in the textbook. They provide some current examples apart from the ones given in the textbook, clarify the doubts that arise in the students, and by prescribing homework allow the continuation of the learning activity. The learner himself has to participate actively in the classroom, think about the material being presented, determine the issues which are not clear to him. He has to read the material number of times subsequently and think about it. He also has to do problems provided in the book, given by his teachers, available in internet websites and also think of applying the learning to issues which are in his knowledge.

Variability in learning outcomes are due to the three main agents of learning apart from the family of the learners which plays more important role in primary and high schools.

80 - 20 Rule in Democracy



What is 80 - 20 Rule in Democracy?

80% of the effort is put in and results are produced by people only.

Governments at various levels in the society contribute only 20%.

If people are not involved in the economic and social spheres wholeheartedly the society will not progress.

In a democracy people elect their representatives. They do not elect leaders who become isolated from people. They elect representatives who represent them in house of people and come back and report to them the deliberations in the house and also inform them about the changes required in their procedures to succeed in the new legal, regulatory, social and economic systems.

The involvement of representatives people in both house of representatives and among people of their constituency is vital in democracy. A democracy in which representatives of people neither attend assemblies/parliament nor interact with the people of their constitueucy is a dysfunctional democracy. It is a sick system needing treatment.

Steel


At the time of its release, the National Steel Policy 2005 had envisaged steel production to reach 110 million tonnes (mt) by 2019-20. However, based on the assessment of the current ongoing projects, both in greenfield and brownfield, the Working Group on Steel for the 12th Five Year Plan has projected that domestic crude steel capacity in the county is likely to be 140 mt by 2016-17 and has the potential to reach 149 mt if all requirements are adequately met.

The National Steel Policy 2005 is currently being reviewed keeping in mind the rapid developments in the domestic steel industry (both on the supply and demand sides) as well as the stable growth of the Indian economy since the release of the Policy in 2005.

India's Performance in Research is Impressive in Recent Years Says Minister for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences Dr. Harsh Vardhan

India's performance in research is promising and impressive in recent years as is evident from the fact that India’s position globally in scientific publications, as per Scopus database, has improved from 12th position in 2005 to 6th position in 2013 with a growth rate of 13.4% as against the world average of 4.4% during 2005-2013.

This was stated by Union Minister for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences Dr. Harsh Vardhan in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.

In the field of nano-science and technology, India’s position has moved from 6th in 2011 to 3rd in 2013. Recent report of Springer Nature has indicated that India is ascending towards world-class science and our country is at 13th position globally on an index of world-class scientific journals. Between 2012 and 2014, Indian Chemistry research increased rapidly with a compound annual growth rate of 8.6% and it stood second only to the United States of America in terms of number of publications.

Government has instituted many schemes to promote indigenous talent of scientists for advancement of scientific research in the country. The Swarnajayanti Fellowship and Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research (INSPIRE), Faculty Scheme of Department of Science and Technology (DST), J.C Bose Fellowship of Science and Engineering Research Board and Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize instituted by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) are all meant for recognition of indigenous talent and outstanding contribution of scientists to science and technology by Indian scientists. Some other measures taken by the Government to attract more and more talented scientists towards advancement of research include successive increase in plan allocations for Scientific Departments, offering attractive research fellowships, strengthening infrastructure for Research and Development (R&D) and implementing programs like Nano Mission, Solar Energy Research Initiative etc.

A total of 22100 persons has been granted financial assistance by the DST and Department of Biotechnology during the last three years including current year, the Minister said.

Dr. Harsh Vardhan also stated that there is no shortage of scientists and technologists in various research institutions/laboratories under the various departments of the Ministry of Science & Technology.

Government has taken various steps to create more institutions and strengthen facilities for higher education and research in the country. It has established 5 Indian Institute of Science, Education & Research (IISERs) at Pune, Mohali, Kolkata, Bhopal and Thiruvananthapuram on the lines of Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. In addition, Government has also established 11 new autonomous S&T institutions under the Ministry of Science and Technology to undertake research in new and emerging areas of S&T such as National Innovation Foundation (NIF), Ahmedabad; Institute for Advanced Studies in Science and Technology (IASST), Guwahati; National Centre of Molecular Materials (NCMM), Thiruvananthapuram, National Agri Food Biotechnology Institute, Mohali, Translational Health Science and TechnologyInstitute, Faridabad, Regional Centre for Biotechnology, Faridabad etc apart from establishing Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), an autonomous body by an Act of Parliament to promote scientific research in all frontline areas of science and engineering to academic institutions, research laboratories and other R&D organisations. Government has also approved setting up of new IITs, IIITs and universities in various states of the country.

To strengthen facilities in emerging and frontline S&T areas in academic institutions, Government has launched various schemes such as Fund for Improvement of S&T Infrastructure (FIST), DBT- BUILDER (DBT-Boost to University Inter-disciplinary Departments of Life Sciences for Education and Research), Promotion of University Research and Scientific Excellence (PURSE) with special S&T packages to spread R&D base for North-Eastern Region, J&K and Bihar etc.

National Innovation Foundation (NIF), Ahmedabad set up by the Department of Science & Technology in 2010 has been providing support to grassroots technological innovations and outstanding traditional knowledge in the country. NIF, Ahmedabad has built a database of more than 2,25,000 technological ideas, innovations and traditional knowledge practices from over 585 districts of the country. It has recognised more than 775 grass root innovators and school students at the national level apart from providing help in getting thousands of grass root technologies validated/ value added. It has also set up a Fabrication Laboratory for product development apart from strengthening in-house research and development facilities for the initial validation of herbal technologies resulting in filing of over 745 patents on behalf of innovators.

National Research Development Corporation (NRDC) under the Ministry of Science and Technology is engaged in licensing, transfer and commercialisation of technologies and innovations to enterprises in the country. Over the last six decades of its existence, the corporation has forged strong links with large number of R&D organisations/universities/industry associations and has filed 1700 patents and signed 4,874 license agreements for transfer of technologies in different sectors.
