The Scheme SCSP has helped in demonstrating technology packages and enhancing livelihood opportunities for SC population by capacity in several sectors in association of S&T based field groups and S&T institutions. The beneficiaries under this scheme are SC community only. Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) Scheme has achieved significant breakthroughs in developing and demonstrating technology packages in several sectors with the association of S&T based field groups and S&T institutions working in tribal areas. DST role in these initiatives has been catalytic where technology development and demonstration aspects are focused. As per guidelines issued by the Planning Commission allocations have been earmarked for spending under the SCSP..`.29 crore and TSP schemes..`25 crore...
[7]
State Science & Technology Programme:..The objective is to establish and support State Councils for S&T to act as focal points in the States and Union Territories for planning, guiding, evaluating, monitoring, co-coordinating and in general spreading Science and Technology activities at State level.

[14]
Mega Facilities for Basic Research:..Basic research in the country has been depending upon mega and capital intensive facilities created by other countries. This practice has led to asymmetries in credit sharing. Further, Indian expertise to build advance scientific instruments and devices does not get fostered outside the strategic areas of research where technology denial forces building of capacities. DST along with Department of Atomic Energy has identified areas where an effective partnership of the two departments can bring about an effective capacity building in the university and academic sector for building mega facilities for basic research.
[15]
Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB):..Supporting basic research in emerging areas of Science and Engineering will be the primary and distinctive mandate of the board.
