Details on IDF and TIFAC

Indian Development Foundation (IDF) is a leading national NGO working for health, education and development.  IDF has an excellent track record of over 32 years of humanitarian service.  IDF has the Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council since 2012.  (

Technology, Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC), a technology think tank under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. Of India, oversees technology trends and makes an effort to delineate possible technology trajectories that the country needs to take. TIFAC has made significant contribution to Indian S&T system by bringing out technology vision documents, technology assessment and foresight reports besides supporting technology innovation, technology infusion in MSME sector and patent facilitation.  (

Recently, TIFAC has brought out the Technology Vision 2035 document, an outcome of an extensive visionary exercise involving about 5000 people across 12 key sectors of national importance. The document was released by the Hon’ble Prime Minister at the 103rd Indian Science Congress on January 3 2016, held in Mysore.

In brief, this document captures the needs and aspirations of Indians in the year 2035 and enunciates them in the form of 12 prerogatives – 6 individual and 6 collective.  A set of 10 Grand Challenges have also been identified. Towards achieving these prerogatives, a range of technologies at different stages of evolution have been identified as enablers in this context. This document is also being followed by technology road maps of 12 key sectors. A brief of these road maps is captured as “Technoscape” in the document. You may access the document at  (TV 2035 – Document link)

Indian Development Foundation is playing its cardinal role as S&T communicators in creating public understanding of TV 2035 by facilitating interaction between the TIFAC Think-tank team and selected stakeholder groups for diffusion and dissemination of the essence of the document

The programme in addition to the presentations on the main TV 2035 document by TIFAC, would also include plenary sessions on 3 sectors of TV 2035. The sectors are: Quality Education, Clean air and Potable Water and Safe and Speedy Mobility.
