Abstract

Among developing nations, India has one of the strongest bases of scientific and technical manpower and infrastructure for research and development. This base was built largely by the government and resulted in significant achievements in strategic sectors such as atomic energy and space. However, in the over-regulated and internally-focused economic policy regime that was in place till the late 1980s, this scientific and technological base did not, barring a few exceptions, translate into significant industrial innovation. Existing firms did not feel the pressure to, or see any benefit in, making serious efforts at technological innovation, and technological capabilities remained localized in research laboratories that were isolated from the system of industrial production.
