Jitendra Singh spoke at an event to celebrate the 36th Foundation Day of the Department of Biotechnology. He released new guidelines for the ease of doing science: “Less government, more governance,” which means less government and more rules.
This isn’t all: The Minister also opens the Ramalingaswami Re-entry Fellowship conclave.
Because of the Department of Biotechnology, Biotechnology has progressed in every way possible, and the best of biotechnology is still yet to come. Jitendra Singh, the Minister of State for Science and Technology, said that India is now experiencing a “reverse brain drain,” with many Indian-born scientists wanting to return home. This is because Prime Minister Narendra Modi has created an environment that encourages people to come back home, he said.
It was the 36th anniversary of the Department of Biotechnology, and the Union Minister was speaking at an event in Faridabad, Haryana, to honor that.
A new set of guidelines for how to do science more easily; a directory for the Re-entry Fellows and the start of a meeting for them were also released by the Minister. Re-entry Fellowship is an important program run by the Department of Biotechnology. It was started in 2006-07, and the goal is to bring back Indian scientists working outside the country.
When the Department of Biotechnology had its 36th Foundation Day, Dr. Jitendra Singh congratulated them and said that over the last 36 years, the DBT had had a big impact on research and development, education, and innovation in the country.
DBT used Covid to show the world what it was all about. When he said that the Department has helped Biotechnology grow, he said that the best of biotechnology still has a long way to go. In his speech, Dr. Jitendra Singh said the DBT’s job is to help promote and grow Biotechnology by creating a strong environment for basic, early, and late-translational research and entrepreneurship and making policies and guidelines for all areas of biotechnology. This is being done by promoting research, innovation, and technology, which leads to new products, building capacities, both human resources and infrastructure, and forming national and international partnerships, to name a few.
That’s what Dr.Jitendra Singh told me. The DBT has also set up 15 theme-based autonomous institutions all over the country. One international organization, the New Delhi center of the International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, and two public sector organizations, BIBCOL and BIRAC, have also been set up to make biologicals and help start-ups grow.
The Union Minister also said that the DBT had played an important role in reducing the COVID-19 pandemic. Especially under the Mission COVID Suraksha, the DBT has played a big part in developing vaccines against COVID-19.
Dr.Jitendra Singh said that the biotechnology industry in India has grown over the last three decades and has made a big difference in a lot of different areas, like health, agriculture, and more. Because of much help from both the government and the private sector, the biotechnology industry has grown very quickly. India is now one of the top 12 biotechnology destinations in the world.
