New Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit stated on Sunday that her government approved a detailed project report that is prepared by the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASCOMM) for setting up a science and technology park in Delhi.
The proposed park will rise from more than 30 acres in Dwarka at the Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT) campus near the international airport.

“We see the science and technology park at NSIT as a strategic initiative to position Delhi as a pre-eminent research and development cluster for knowledge industries which are today looking at undertaking advanced scientific research in various fields. The strong presence of industry, academia and other resources in and around Delhi enables high-end research and development and innovation and this initiative is an attempt by us to create that opportunity”, said Dikshit.

Dikshit also added that the initiative was a central milestone for establishing Delhi as a global innovation hub and serves as a platform for sustainable and holistic industry. Some areas recognised for research at the park include communication and information technology, micro engineering, environmental sciences, photonics, nanotechnology, automotive technologies, life-sciences, and biotechnology. According to NASSCOM President Som Mittal, “The science and technology park at NSIT can play the role of a catalyst in the development of an innovation cluster in Delhi and thereby making it an important initiative towards the overall development of the Indian innovation ecosystem.
