The growth story of India depends on its achievements in the science and technology sector, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Referring to the theme of 107th Indian Science Congress – “Science and Technology: Rural Development”, Modi said that it is only due to science and technology that government programmes have reached the needy and he exhorted the young scientists to work in the field of rural development where there are several opportunities for cheaper and better innovations. “There is a need to revolutionise the landscape of India. My motto for the young scientists has been Innovate, Patent, Produce and Prosper”. He added, “These four steps will lead our country towards faster development. If we innovate, we will patent and that in turn will make our production smoother and when we take these products to the people of our country, they will prosper. Innovation for the people and by the people is the direction of our ‘New India’.”

“New India needs technology and also a logical temperament, so that we can give a new direction to our social and economic sectors,” said Modi.

Modi said: “India has climbed to third position globally in the number of peer reviewed science and engineering publications. It is also growing at a rate of about 10 per cent compared to around four per cent global average.”
