Mr. Vaibhav Saxena emphasised on what engineers can do to contribute to accomplish Atmanirbhar Bharat. We need to look out for problems in the government policies and find challenges. “We need to solve our problems and thereby generate employment”, he added.

Mr Gaurav Kedia spoke about the 5 pillars of Atmanirbhar Bharat – economy, infrastructure, system, vibrant demography and demand. It’s Atmanirbhar Bharat not Atmacentric Bharat. He also talked about the symbiotic relationship for social engineering, biogas production and solid waste management system. He mentioned about 3 tests – the reality test, competitive test & the value test, which needs to be considered before starting out a startup.
