Rural Technology Action Group(RuTAG) : An initiative of the Principal Scientific Advisor (PSA) to the Government of India located in eight IITs
RUTAG-IITD was established in January 2009 to help R&D and upgrade its technologies.
To identify technologies ongoing in the villages or have potential to reach in the rural areas to help to provide higher income and employment or reduce drudgery of the people in rural areas. If the technologies have some technical problems and pinches to adopt in the target region, could be taken up for further adaption or improvement or value addition through the application of S&T by the relevant R&D institutions in the country.
The objective of RuTAG is to provide institutional support to demand driven technology upgradation and also synergise efforts towards efficient rural technology delivery.
