Presidents Message

I am glad to be part of the Tamil Nadu Technology Development & Promotion Centre (TNTDPC) in my capacity as Secretary, Technology Development Board, Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India. TNTDPC established through the joint participation of the Government of Tamil Nadu and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) as Society is acting as one-stop shop for Technology Development & Promotion, Technology Upgradation and Induction & Commercilaization of New Technologies in Tamil Nadu as a unique model in the country.

Tamil Nadu is one of the most advanced industrial states with focus on Automobile, Textiles, Agriculture, Food Processing and Machines & tools. Under the guidance of its Governing Board with representatives from other departments of the Government of India, Government of Tamil Nadu, ISRO, CII, TANSIDCO etc., TNTDPC is promoting core sectors of the state like Agriculture, Food Processing, Textiles, Automotive Aerospace and Defence Manufacturing and IP Rights by organizing conferences, seminars & training programmes leading to strenthening of MSMEs in the state. The centre provides user-friendly environment, linking support and guidance from national and global experts in upgrading the industrial growth of the state. It has now stepped into emerging sectors like innovation, green energy, electric vehicle etc and helps by identifying the right opportunity, technologies, financial partners, equipments, market and guide for mobilization of resources.

Keeping in view the need of present day, TNTDPC must focus on other socially relevant areas as such as water, sanitation, health care and education. Commercialization of products/services in these areas would meet the expectation of public at large.

As President of TNTDPC, I wish the centre a great success in its current and future endeavours.
