Selected Replicable Technology Models for Rural Application

This section highlights selected rural technology models developed and field tested by science and technology based field groups at the grass root level in India. This has been achieved by grant-in-aid support provided by Science and Society Division, Department of Science and Technology, Government of India through time bound projects to develop technology systems that could, with site-specific modifications, be implemented by other science and technology groups/field groups, provided of course, necessary information is made available to them. These models have distinct features of science and technology, a few stand out because of their extremely innovative approach regarding need identification, choice of suitable technology, appropriate scaling, technology modification, economic sustainability, optimum usage of local resources and emphasis on upgradation of artisanal skills and capabilities and more so the system approaches. It is hoped that these technology packages and field-models will now be possible to replicate on a much larger scale.
