In India, more than 75 percent of total science and technology funding, including gross expenditure on research and development, comes from the government. For this reason, government policies play a critical role in decision making regarding the development of science and technology. In recent years, innovation has assumed the centre stage in the achievement of India's development goals. Combined with science and technology based solutions, the innovation paradigm will continue to lay ground work for all socio-economic sectors within the country.
