TEPP Outreach, Cluster Innovation Center (TOSIS) by the Project Promoting Innovations in Individuals, Start-ups and MSMEs (PRISM) under the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Central Department of Science and Technology, Constituent College of Technology and Engineering (CTAE) of Maharana Pratap Agricultural University, Udaipur Operated in through this project, by providing financial assistance to the inventors and Indian citizens to explore and develop new technology, they provide funds to make their ideas a reality. The objective of this project is to encourage the Government of India's Make in India program and to make inventors self-reliant. Under this, assistance of up to 20 lakh and 50 lakh is provided to the inventors in two phases.
University Vice-Chancellor Dr. Ajit Kumar Karnataka informed that many types of technical innovations are taking place in our university, which will reduce the labor of the farmers and will help in timely completion of agricultural works. Presently many students of the university are working on various innovations. It is very pleasant, motivating and encouraging that in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Goa and neighboring states, Prism is the only center of the project which is helping the farmers and innovators.
TOSIS, Chief Coordinator and Founder of Prism Project, Dr. P.K. Singh was told that CTAE is the only center out of the 11 centers of Prism Project operating in the country, in which assistance amounting to more than Rs.1.2 crore has been provided to more than 40 inventors so far under this project. In the past through this project young inventors of CTAE have invented many devices.
Dr. Naveen Jain (Convenor, TOSIS, Prism Project) said that under this, supervisor Omprakash Beniwal, mainly from the medical field, has developed a machine to separate blood components at a cost of only 3.50 lakhs. With this, white blood and red blood cells, platelets and plasma can be separated. At present, it is imported in India from European countries at a cost of up to Rs 25 lakh. Omprakash Beniwal has constructed a portable unit of this plant with the financial help of acceptance of Rs. Inventor Deepak Singh invented a battery enclosure with innovative technology, this invention will increase the life of the battery.
Recently, a fuzzy based solar egg incubator developed by Dr. Dola Sinha from Durgapur, West Bengal has been prepared which will help weak chickens to hatch eggs. Virendra Singh of Jaipur has made an advanced type of battery operated water meter and is working on its commercialization. CTAE researcher Dr. Sheetal has developed a machine Henna Harvester Machine for harvesting henna leaves. At present the harvesting time of henna leaves is very short, at that time human labor is very expensive. Therefore, labor and time can be saved by using this device. Researcher Dr. Srinivas Girijal from CTAE has developed a device to break the upper stem of chili by making a chili destocking machine. To make chili powder, it is necessary to remove the stem.

Researcher Dr. Srinivas Girijal from CTAE has developed a device to break the upper stem of chili by making a chili destocking machine. To make chili powder, it is necessary to remove the stem. By this device, the upper part of 50 kg of chillies can be easily separated in 1 hour. Bel Pulp Extractor developed by Researcher Dr. Mada Sai from CTAE itself can easily extract the pulp of Bael fruit, by which human labor can be used in a more appropriate manner. Pulp of 10 to 12 bael fruits can be extracted by this machine in just 1 hour. Recently, investigator Abhishek Saxena has got approval of Rs.19.68 lakhs, which will produce green coal from farm waste, which can generate electricity.
Former coordinator and scientist of the TOSIS project Dr. SM. Mathur said that in CTAE this scheme was known as TAPE from 2008 to 2014. The project has been known as TOSIS since 2014. In which 40 more devices have been developed after 2014. Former coordinator Dr. Sanjay Kumar Jain, Head of Department, Food and Processing, told that under this project, Tosis Center of CTAE has been ranked first in the country and has left other institutes including IITs behind. CTAE has developed more than 40 technologies over the years, most of which are available in the market. In this project, applications are invited from Indian citizens who have received any level of education, to give shape to innovative ideas. Application Form D.S. I.R. Available on the website of New Delhi and CTAE Udaipur. Fill your application completely and send it to CTAE Udaipur by post. Social media like the YouTube channel (@tocisctae) has also been used to provide more information about the project. In order to make the benefits of this scheme accessible to more and more people, the information and method of application of the scheme is told through workshops in schools and colleges from time to time.
