SITARA dreams of building an advanced and prosperous India, which believes in the power of Science & Technology to deliver a better future for its citizens.
SITARA aims to do this by creating a high-tech, R & D intensive economy which will enable India to meet its requirements for advanced equipment in large sectors of the economy. This will help:
Lower India’s import dependence in military, aerospace, ICT, cyberspace, and other import intensive sectors technologies
Capture maximum value addition in advanced manufacturing and cyberspace
Ensure India’s talented citizens contribute to development at home
Massively propel high quality, environmentally responsible economic growth
Exert a demand pull on the education and skilling system
Increase employment opportunities
Reduce the C.A.D. & strengthen the rupee
Improve national welfare
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techno-nationalist industrial policies, it is high time for India to emerge out of its reflexive assimilation of outdated globalisation orthodoxies and chart its own path to development and globalisation to set its path to high growth.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.
SITARA works through its highly distinguished network, consisting of prominent citizens dedicated to high-tech indigenisation and the country’s welfare. They come from all walks of life, and include eminent Academics, Administrators, Ambassadors, Armed Forces Personnel, Artists, the indigenous Business Community, Industry Associations, the Media, and Scientists. Their details are available under the relevant Sector Councils. Their advocacy, individually or through organisations including SITARA, helps us to move forward towards our goals.
