India's future growth depends on science-driven economy: Jitendra Singh

New Delhi: Union Minister of State  Science & Technology; Minister of State Earth Sciences Dr Jitendra Singh said here today that India’s future growth depends on a science-driven economy.  

Speaking at an interactive session on “Role of Research Technology & Start-ups in Blue Economy” at the inaugural session of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (elixir of energy of independence)  week organised by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Dr Jitendra Singh said, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while India commemorates 75 years of independence, it is also an occasion to plan for the next 25 years with the conscious realization that science and technology are going to be the main currency for the inclusive growth of India.

Dr Jitendra Singh mentioned India’s blue economy is understood as a subset of the national economy comprising an entire ocean resources system and human-made economic infrastructure in marine, maritime, and onshore coastal zones within the country’s legal jurisdiction. Dr Jitendra Singh said it aids the production of goods and services that have clear linkages with economic growth, environmental sustainability, and national security. The blue economy is a vast socio-economic opportunity for coastal nations like India to utilize ocean resources for societal benefit responsibly, the Minister added. 

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision and his stature as the world’s most popular leader has accorded extraordinary esteem to India which was never forthcoming in the earlier decades.  Notably, Prime Minister Modi has a special aptitude for science-driven developments, which has enabled all the scientific programmes to concentrate on applications that are relevant to the life of the common man.
