Science and Technology in India has progressed largely through the government institutions with its own share of achievements and pitfalls. While there are many pockets of excellence, as nation India’s global standing in S & T is very much below its real potential, largely because of a lack of an integrated policy push.
This review document is an overview of the S & T status in India to highlight the gaps in S & T capabilities that need policy level focus for India to harness and apply S & T towards achieving the national goals in development and security.
