The Institute has just identified the three villages, with which it would be engaged. Work is underway to undertake a techno-social survey to understand the villages and identify technology challenges being faced by them.
There are a number of villages surrounding the permanent campus site of IIT Jodhpur with whom initiatives can be taken up in building organic relations as a part of Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA). A survey was conducted in short-listing these villages. Idea is to develop some technologies such as low cost filters to reduce fluoride contents.
