DIRECTOR'S REPORT
V
igyan Prasar invites the attention of fellow citizens of India to this report. Details
regarding a large number of initiatives to reach out to several stakeholders in
the interface of science, technology and development are presented. This is with
special reference to the period of report 2012 – 2013. VP’s initiatives are aligned
with India’s continually evolving democratic and resilient information sharing ad
inclusive communication strategies. These are to deliver appropriate information
in a timely manner, build capacities to sustain access and enable an enriching
learning experience.
Science and technology are at the core of development. Citizens in all walks
of life and spheres of activities should be enabled to comprehend the spread
and depth of scientific thinking and applications of such insights, in addition to
a glimpse of the emerging frontiers of science and technology. These are directly
relevant to the quality of life and the roles they can play to sustain transitions.
Knowledge systems in communities and individuals can also enrich learnings and
sharing of insights.

Vigyan Prasar believes in this vibrant two-way communication process to
establish synergies between locally relevant thinking and larger scale knowledge
hybridization and adaptation. Topical and temporal relevance are critical for
success through this framework. Several themes and tools of communication have
been the focus of initiatives during the period of report. Stakeholders included
institutions that could enable large scale and wide spread outreach signifying
synergies. Knowledge products were developed in response to felt needs and
could be suitably adapted for local use.

Vigyan Prasar also recognizes the growing relevance of bilateral and
multilateral science, technology and development considerations. This also
creates the context to use principles and tools of knowledge economy to
recognize the uniqueness of locally relevant and micro level knowledge systems
and establish the scope for transfers and mutually reinforcing enrichment.
Scientists in Vigyan Prasar recognize the unique opportunity they have to
also function as forerunners of target specific information delivery through
various missions of the Government of India in particular. As forerunners we
can strengthen the enabling circumstances for easier integration of knowledge
and enable well informed action. The way ahead is truly exciting.

INTRODUCTION
V
igyan Prasar is an Autonomous Institution under the Dept of Science &
Technology, Govt. of India; established in the year 1989. The principal
objective of VP’s initiatives is to enable citizens and stakeholders in diverse
sectors of development, access appropriate information on the robust attributes
of science and technology. This is expected to help them recognize the openendedness and continually evolving facets of these two instruments / enablers
of inclusive growth.
Vigyan Prasar takes note of India’s development on several frontiers and
that successes and challenges in sustaining momentum of transitions call
for integrated science and technology solutions that can be locally adapted.
Communication on the relevance of emerging frontiers includes principles,
practices and use of tools/techniques, technologies, preparedness of citizens to
comprehend and engage in well informed action. These aspects are central to
optimal delivery of related services and outcome. Sector specific top-down and
bottom-up approaches are essential to build on unique knowledge systems
already with stake holders aligned with an understanding of the enabling
circumstances.

The present framework for the way forward builds on VP’s profound history
and insights derived from 24 years of work. The staff of VP acknowledges the
wisdom and tenacity of purpose demonstrated by its leadership over the years
and will consolidate the institution’s niche in areas it has delivered in. VP is also

poised to enhance the value of services it provides to our country by adopting
mutually reinforcing multi pronged strategies and synergies in newer and
strategically important thrust reas too. This assumes the form of the renewed
framework that goes beyond stand - alone approaches to an integrated
programmatic approach with forward and backward linkages with initiatives in
progress across the country and overseas.
This over arching perspective is aligned with India’s developmental aspirations
wherein her people’s inclusive and emphatic involvement in initiatives through
well informed action, guided by scientific temper that comprehends the scope
of appropriate and verifiable action is central to sustain development. This
approach is consolidated and reinforced in the recent Science Technology &
Innovation Policy 2013 (http://www.dst.gov.in/sti/policy/eng.pdf), building on
the earlier resolutions too.
These information support and capacity building initiatives have enormous
implications for
yy Rapid integration of well adapted science/technologies/tools/
techniques to initiate and sustain development &
12
yy Compliance with and leadership in national, regional and multilateral
frameworks of development including preventive management as a
logical extension of this inclusive approach.
VP’s expanding portfolio of initiatives will converge on three approaches namely:
Science & technology literacy, Development Communication and Enhancing
S&T content in media.
VP fulfils this objective through strategically important tasks through in house thematic and communication expertise and institutional collaborations/
synergies.

Vigyan Prasar has a well-equipped studio for EduSAT Interactive Network.
In this network, this central studio is termed the “ teaching end”. All other SITs
spread over 50 centres are known as “class room ends”. Since our network is
a two-way communication system, subject experts or teachers who conduct
classes from the teaching end can see and interact with people or students at
each of the SIT classrooms.
