The IISF is to focus on AMRIT KAAL. During the 75th Independence Day celebrations held in 2021, PM Modi unveiled a new road map for India. This road map is for 25 years. It talks about how to make India a developed country, how to reduce the differences between rural and urban areas, and more. All these are to be achieved using science and technology. These 25 years were referred to by the Prime Minister as AMRIT KAAL. And the term was frequently used by the finance minister during Budget presentations. The IISF is striving forward in this context.
