Studies have shown that India, with a huge population of about 550 million young men and women below the age of 25 years, has enormous un-tapped innovation capability which can easily meet basic human needs of the country. Recognizing this fact the Prime Minister in 2010 set up the National Innovation Council and the President of India declared 2010-2020 as the Decade of Innovation. Since then the National Innovation Council has been encouraging country?s various sectors such as: industrial; governmental; educational and other related segments to work together and establish innovation clusters and networks for developing synergy and taking the innovation activities in the country to the next higher level. Realizing the importance the University in 2013 established an Innovation Council with the Pro Vice-Chancellor as its Chairman.
