UGC Directs Universities to Livestream PM Modi's Address on India's Techade

On March 13, 2024, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for three semiconductor plants in India. To commemorate the occasion, the UGC has urged that higher education institutions broadcast the PM's talk on YouTube at 10.30 a.m., as well as distribute posters and other event-related material.

The background note shared by the UGC states that India is known as an IT hub and now it aims to take the lead in Artificial Intelligence (AI), semiconductor design and production, quantum computing etc. India's Techade signifies India's dedication to embracing the digital age to ensure sustainable development, create new job opportunities, enhance quality of life, and establish a strong presence in the global technology landscape.

“India Semiconductor Mission has been set up by the Government of India to create an end-to-end semiconductor ecosystem to enable the nation to become a significant player in the global semiconductor industry.

The three semiconductor facilities are:

1. India’s First Fab Facility in Dholera, Gujarat

2. OSAT facility in Sanand, Gujarat

3. OSAT facility in Morigaon, Assam

Students and youths are key stakeholders of this endeavour, therefore, all the universities/HEIs shall make necessary arrangements and ensure that all students, especially of STEM and technical disciplines participate in the above programme,” states the background note.

The UGC has asked all universities and HEIs to organize a conference/seminar at 9.30 am on March 13 and to ensure live streaming of the PM’s address at 10.30 am and then continue with their programme. The seminar/conference should deliberate on India’s Techade vision, India’s Semiconductor Mission and how Viksit Bharat @2047 can be achieved through research and innovation etc. The UGC has issued the Standard Operating Procedures (SoPs) and the draft minute-to-minute programme for organising the event at the university/ HEIs level.
