India is strongly committed to developing indigenous technology and IT solutions, underlining its dedication to innovation and self-reliance in the rapidly advancing digital landscape. OpenGov Asia reported that the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), led by Dr N Kalaiselvi, is driving initiatives to foster ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ through the development of indigenous technologies as part of its pursuit of advancing India’s self-reliance.

Dr Kalaiselvi stressed CSIR’s commitment to indigenisation across its 37 laboratories, showcasing success stories like the ‘Purple Revolution’ achieved through Lavender cultivation in Jammu & Kashmir, illustrating how technological innovation in agriculture can spur economic growth. This aligns with India’s broader effort to leverage technology for inclusive governance, as exemplified by initiatives in Jammu and Kashmir, inspiring similar endeavours in Himalayan states.

Additionally, the CSIR program highlighted PRIMA ET11, India’s first women-friendly compact Electric Tractor, showcasing the country’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity in technology development. This aligns with earlier initiatives, reinforcing India’s drive for technological self-reliance and inclusivity.
