At the outset, Director (IIT Jodhpur) welcomed the Hon’ble Union Minister of State and the participants to the special meeting on an important subject that will have long term impact on the national GDP growth. Sh. M. L. Bapna made a proposal (through a presentation) to establish the Rajasthan ITIR in the Jodhpur-Pali region with three tracks of work – Electronics Hardware Manufacturing, IT and ITeS. He gave an overview of the steps to be taken to establish the Rajasthan ITIR, which would have focus on Research & Development, Software & Hardware product development and manufacturing.
 
The Hon’ble Union Minister of State welcomed the proposal. He emphasized that the Rajasthan ITIR should focus on Electronics Hardware Manufacturing, the most critical national need, which would reduce our country’s reliance on imports of electronics products and thus save precious foreign exchange. Further, he felt that the Rajasthan ITIR should focus also on R&D and human resource development, which would create the Intellectual Property for the nation, and thereby make India a nation competent in developing cutting edge technologies as well as world class electronics and software products. Also, he opined that IIT Jodhpur, DRDO Defence Laboratory Jodhpur, and AIIMS Jodhpur should establish a joint multi-disciplinary R&D center that will be an anchor for indigenous sensor technologies in India in time ahead.
 
As a way forward, the Hon’ble Union Minister of State desired that a formal proposal needs to be forwarded by the State Government to the Government of India seeking to establish an Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) in Jodhpur-Pali region of Rajasthan. He opined that the Pali District authorities and Department of Industries, Government of Rajasthan, need to take a lead in this respect and address issues that may be required for setting up the said ITIR. He assured that Ministry of Electronics and IT, Government of India would provide all possible support for the success of the project.
