The Prime Minister also pointed out the regional imbalance in terms of education institutions in different States. He hoped that the Government at the Centre and the States will take note of findings of India Science Report and evolve a policy to remedy these regional imbalances.

Mentioning the initiatives taken by the Government, the Prime Minister said that the Ministry of Human Resource Development has already set up a task force on rejuvenation of scientific research in universities and the target of doubling the number of PhDs coming out of India within the next five to six years.

Appreciating the awardees, Shri Kapil Sibal, Minister for Science and Technology and Ocean Development said that the Government has taken several initiatives to inculcate scientific temper in the younger generation.

Indeed the very best must be retained in India and return to India’.

Expressing his gratitude for Prime Minister releasing the India Science Report, the Minister said that it is truly revealing of the state of science and technology in the country—it will help quell the many myths that are spread about Indian science and technology.

Appreciating the role of CSIR for recognizing the best in Indian science and technology for decades now, Shri Sibal said ‘we need to publicise these heros on the national stage. This will inspire, motivate and attract some of our brightest youngsters to science’.
