    Description

    Science And Technology In India covers the developments in the science and technology fields with a socio-economic perspective.

    Summary Of The Book

    The development of science and technology in a country ensures progress in all fields, and is also indicative of a country's commitment to use the scientific knowledge and technology gained for social development.

    India has endeavored to foster the growth of science and technology right from independence. This book does a review of the progress in science and technology and its impact on various fields. Science And Technology In India is divided into seventeen chapters. It begins with a historical review of the S&T policy in India and the S&T infrastructure. It then looks at the progress and achievements in various fields, beginning with Ecology and Environment.

    This chapter examines India’s legislation on environmental issues. It examines the policies regarding conservation of natural resources and wildlife, measures to control various types of pollution, and efforts at increasing awareness about environmental issues.

    The book goes on to discuss everything from the impact of technology in the field of agriculture and industry, to the country’s progress in high-tech fields like Nuclear Energy, Information Technology and Electronics. The research and achievements in defence and space research are also documented.

    The policies formulated for industrial development to achieve technological self-sufficiency and how effective these have been are also examined. The progress in health and medicine, its reach and impact on society, and the significant growth and impact of the field of Information Technology are also reviewed.

    Science And Technology In India discusses the government's initiative in encouraging and fostering the growth of science and technology. It looks at the developments in different aspects of science and technology, and examines these with an emphasis on the impact these have had on the society, and on the role they have played in the country’s socio-economic progress.

    Science And Technology In India collects and provides corroborated information on the country’s science and technology scenario, presenting it in a cohesive manner so that readers understand the significance of these achievements in the context of the country’s development.

    Unnecessary details

    I am preparing for UPSC and hence bought this book. I am finding it filled with some very unnecessary details, which just consume time rather than providing knowledge. Plus the paper quality is not so good.

    It is a Good Book If Studied with the Right Approach.

    It is a guide book and not a textbook eventually, one must read the book on refrence purpose only. the sections on science and technology must be covered up by dailies and the magazines... while the ncerts provide conceptual clarity.. this is a fact-bombing book and should only be used to upgrade your present knowledge and not to acquire knowledge.. those who mentioned the book as entirely bogus and useless must have got the wrong approach for this book, surely.

    Is there a more meaningless bgook than this?

    This is the worst book possible for S&T. What is a S&T book than talks about recent developments and encompasses developments up till year 2008 and being circulated in 2013? I wish I could throw this book on the face of writer. I feel like wasting a handful amount of money on just scrap. Also the FONTSIZE is so annoying that u mite end up aching ur head. I wish that my views reach the author and they come to now what have they excreted.

    Different From Ordinary S&T Books!

    Usually We Come Across Books Dealing With Typical Science, Chemical Reactions, Biological Organisms, Organic Materials, Physical Calculations, Environmental Happenings & Reasons, But Gone Are The Days, Where Questions Regarding These Things Are Asked, The Books Solely Deals With Today's Requirements & Type Of Examinations Patterns Of S&T, Highly Recommended, Because It's Approach Is Totally Different From Other Books!

    Highly recommended.

    I highly recommend this book for studying the paper-3 of mains of UPSC. It is very comprehensive, however, since science affairs are dynamic in nature, most of the part you will be stuck to researching on the internet for notes.
