CTAE Innovators awarded at Rashtrapati Bhawan

Innovator from CTAE’s Technology Business Incubation Centre – Narayan Lal Gurjar, Shashi Pratap Singh (2nd year Agricultural Engineering) and Ankit Jain (1st year Agricultural Engineering) were awarded with Gandhian Young Technology Innovation Award 2018.

The team was awarded at Rashtrapati Bhawan in presence of President of India. The award was given by Dr Harsh Vardhan, Ministry of Science & Technology (India).

The team was awarded for their innovation – Eco Friendly Water Retention Natural Polymer. This innovation has been done using waste products. One of the biggest challenges with farmers is to ensure that water can be used for as long as possible. This innovation will help the farmers in their endeavour. Because this product is made from waste products, its cost is a lot lower than chemical polymers currently available in market and hence more affordable for farmers.

The team of Narayan Lal Gurjar is the only team selected from Rajasthan for this award this year. They were also the youngest team that was awarded this year.

The Gandhian Technology award is given only to those innovators whose inventions have a positive impact on society and those that can be linked to Government policies.
