Effective societal application of progress in science and technology is key to the successful and sustainable development. Govt. of Madhya Pradesh has established M.P. Council of Science & Technology with the objective of bringing happiness through socio-economic development of all sections-urban, rural to the remotest part of the state. During last three decades, Council has undertaken many programmes for popularization and application of science and technology showing its impact in rural and tribal areas to the remotest part of state reaching last man of society. Implemented programmes by the Council encompass rural, artisans, farmers, women, students, researchers, teachers including all people to inculcate scientific attitude among them. Many of the programmes of the Council has been applauded and awarded at national level.

I hope the innovative programmes of the Council through intervention of science and technology will pave the way for fast development of the state
