New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, August 18, hailed the newly inaugurated India's first-ever 3D-printed post office operated in Bangalore.

Modi commended the achievement as a remarkable testament to the country's strides in innovation and advancement. Using the platform of 'X' (formerly known as Twitter), Modi expressed his sentiments, stating, "The unveiling of India's first 3D-printed Post Office in Cambridge Layout, Bengaluru, is a source of pride for every Indian. This achievement not only underscores our nation's progress in innovation but also encapsulates the essence of a self-reliant India. My commendations to the diligent individuals who dedicated their efforts to bring this Post Office to fruition."

Earlier today, Ashwini Vaishnaw, the Union Railways Minister, inaugurated India's pioneering post office crafted using 3D printing technology. The inauguration took place at the Cambridge Layout in Bengaluru, adjacent to Ulsoor Bazaar, within the confines of a 1100 square feet post office.

In his address during the inauguration ceremony, Minister Vaishnaw painted a vivid picture of India's transformation through the lens of 3D-printed technology. He acknowledged the incredible journey from not foreseeing India's development of 4G and 5G technology to its current stature as a producer and innovator in telecom technology. He also noted the surprising evolution that led the nation to design and manufacture world-class trains.

The process of 3D printing technology, which is rapidly gaining momentum, revolves around constructing objects layer by layer using computer-aided design. This revolutionary approach is altering the landscape of structural construction.

Looking back about a year, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati, undertook a groundbreaking initiative by constructing a 3D-printed sentry post for the Indian Army, exemplifying the country's commitment to indigenous research and development.
