Message of Hon’ble Minister of State

Dr. Jitendra Singh

Dr. Jitendra Singh

Union Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (IC) and Minister of State for Prime Minister Office; Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions; Department of Atomic Energy and Department of Space

I am very happy to note that Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and Department of Science and Technology (DST) along with National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) have come together to organize this first-of-its-kind multi-venue Mega-Science exhibition, Vigyan Samagam, which showcases India’s presence in the field of science at the International stage, as equal partners.

Becoming a Founding Member / Member in such highly scientific projects based on India’s current infrastructure strength in itself is the testimony of achievements of our Scientists and Engineers. The present government has always been supportive of and committed to our participation in scientific and technology projects.

Vigyan Samagam is expected to inculcate scientific temperament amongst the young students and motivate them to choose science as a career in future. It will also help Indian industries to meet International standards in different fields of scientific innovations, thereby helping build both, human and Industrial capacities of our country. It will also help in improving the scientific infrastructure in the country.

I suggest a three-tier system be set up for scientific research involving older and younger generations so that the continuity is maintained in research work. Vigyan Samagam is an eye-opener to India’s unimaginable triumphs in science and technology.

I congratulate the organisers for outreaching to the masses and wish Vigyan Samagam a grand success.
