Capture maximum value addition in advanced manufacturing and cyberspace

Massively propel high quality, environmentally responsible economic growth

Reduce the C.A.D. & strengthen the rupee

The current geopolitical scenario is dangerous for India

A certain Power has mastered the most advanced technologies of our era, and is deploying them for increased geopolitical power, mass surveillance and suppression of liberties. We have also suffered an attack on our borders.

When most of the world is turning towards techno-nationalist industrial policies, it is high time for India to emerge out of its reflexive assimilation of outdated globalisation orthodoxies and chart its own path to development and globalisation to set its path to high growth. This will ultimately benefit the global economy also.

India has to at least match the technological achievements of our big neighbour to be able to survive as an independent, self reliant entity not beholden to other powers for its defence and high-tech requirements.
