I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 13. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

 

II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 

For monitoring and effective implementation of Science and Technology programme a cell was created in Lakshadweep Administration during the latter part the V1 Five Year plan. The cell was subsequently upgraded to that of a Department under the Lakshadweep Administration; the department was also designated as the Technical cell of the Island Development Authority in respect of Lakshadweep .The Department implements various Science and Technology schemes.

 

Science Popularization is one of the major activities of the Department and it is a continuing scheme. Various Science Awareness Programmes like exhibition, seminars, group discussions; quiz, elocution etc were conducted in all islands for students, members of Non Governmental Organization as well as public. As part of encouraging the students in education field Science awards are also regularly being presented during Independent Day function. The Department has established Science Clubs and Green Corps in all Senior Secondary Schools and also Navodaya Vidayalaya in Minicoy. We are encouraging as well as Financing the students to Participate in National Children's Science Congress held in National level annually.

                       

A large number of studies have been conducted the studies on Coastal Erosion and Sediment Movement in 3 islands through the Centre for Earth Science Studies Trivandrum. Demarcations on High Tide Line, Law Tide Line & No Development Zones etc were established with the help of Centre for Earth Science Studies, Trivandrum. Fish Aggregation Devices were deployed in various Islands in association with National Institute of Ocean Technology, Chennai and Fisheries Department. This helped fishermen to catch more fishes, which naturally aggregated near and around these devices. In association with this department National Institute of Oceanography (National Institute of Oceanography), GOA has installed Automatic weather Station at Kavaratti. This will be useful for the measurement of meteorological parameters from remote locations. Lakshadweep Coral Reef Monitoring Network Research Station is managed jointly by this Department & National Institute of Oceanography, Goa .As part of this the Department was able to conduct training Programme in Scuba Diving to most of the Technical staffs of Department of Science & Technology to equip them in Coral Monitoring. The coral reef monitoring surveys are regularly conducting in all inhabited islands & uninhabited islands such as Bangarum & Suheli.

                                       

This Department has established a Digital Cyclone warning system in association with India Meteorological Department at Kavaratti. An Incinerator was installed at Kavaratti for management of Solid Waste especially plastics. This Department in collaboration with Centre for Water Resource Development Management (CWRDM), Calicut, have constructed 945 Rain Water Harvesting Structure of 10,000 liters capacity in various islands under Lakshadweep Island Water Management Project .A number of community rain water harvesting structure were also constructed. Considering success of the project this administration decided to continue the project under Plan of Science & Technology Sector. Desalination Plant is one of the attractive projects successfully done by the Department of Science & Technology with association of National Institute of Ocean Technology and LPWD. This Administration has also taken up with Government of India for establishing similar plants in the remaining Islands by next two years. This Department is also sponsoring the National Geographical Channel for the public in the cable TV Network of The Lakshadweep Development Corporation Ltd.

 

As a part of encouraging the students in Information Technology this Department had already established Cyber café's in 3 Islands i.e. in Chetlat, Kalpeni, Kiltan one each & 2 Cyber café's in Kavaratti. Establishment of Science & Technology Museum & Planetarium at Kavaratti is a decorative Scheme under Science & Technology Department and it is under progress.

A number of scientific studies are conducted and a large number of such studies are to be conducted in future.  The laboratory that was established with core staff has to be strengthened to cater the increased need.  As this is the only Scientific Laboratory available in the Union Territory, it should be upgraded to the maximum.  This is very relevant due to the fact that the geographic isolation of the islands hinders samples to be transported to mainland for analysis.  Hence strengthening and self-sufficiency of the laboratory is envisaged during 11th Five Year Plan period.

 

The Lakshadweep Pollution Control Committee was constituted during 1988 under the provisions of Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 as specified by the MOEF Government, of India. Central Pollution Control Board has reconstituted the LPCC on 23.03.06. Vide notification of Lakshadweep Pollution Control committee. Now the committee is implementing the following Acts & Rules within the territorial jurisdiction of Union Territory of Lakshadweep. The Lakshadweep Pollution committee is functioning under Department Science & Technology. Hence strengthening and self-sufficiency of Lakshadweep Pollution Control committee is envisaged during 11th Five Year Plan period.

4. Objectives of the scheme      :

 

A spoken word remains with us as long as we hear it.  Written sentences remind us for long, as long as it is read.  But, a task done with our own hands remain with humanity and us forever, for it stems from our mind.  To observe and learn through the senses is the most rudimentary form of mundane learning.  To question and to internalize the principles behind the observations unasked hitherto is the ultimate step of knowledge gathering.  Therefore an opportunity ‘to do and learn' is the best path for internalization.  Needless to say that the methodology of doing and learning enables the development of scientific temper, nurturing of scientific methodology, understanding of the potential of science and technology to solve the real life problems etc.  In order to realize these objectives, it is necessary that we develop facilities for Children Science Park, Technology Pavilion, children's Science Library, Children's Mini Workshop, See and Believe Children's Science Laboratories and Multimedia computer facility. The S & T Museum and Planetarium had established during X Five Year Plan. Since Lakshadweep islands are   geographically separated from the peninsula the scientific developments and changes seldom reach the people.  The Science & Technology Museum can display such important events and discoveries.  The proposed programme will facilitate Attachments Programme for school children from various islands during holidays and working days, Science Talent Development Programme, function as a platform for Child Scientist's Forums, etc.

4. Objectives of the scheme      :

 

             As a part of the XI Five year Plan the Science & Technology Department is proud to introduce a very futuristic project proposal, which will amazingly change the public vision of the natives of Lakshadweep. This is also expected to improve the living standards of the common public, here. We plan to educate and develop the native women community and the unemployed youth by helping them to become an earning member in their families. Science & Technology mainly focuses to utilize the abundant natural resources available here, that are left unattended appropriately. They include the coconut (its products), diversity of fishes and the breadfruit etc. A local observation on them, elicit a massive source of revenue for the public, if been managed in an efficient way. This is expected to eradicate poverty and other its consequences at a very high degree. We believe that   these various entrepreneur programmes like Fishing and Coir training and also to establish Tailoring units in all islands would help in the self-employment of the unemployed and women, there by adding up to their family revenue. This can even be carried out as a home-based profession under systematic technical assistance and support of this Department. For the same reasons, Science & Technology believes to have a massive support behind this project.
