 Indian science policy lacks a collective strategy - SciDev.Net
This unfortunate state of affairs, where national science policy is decided largely over the heads of the scientific community, is exacerbated by the absence of any fresh efforts by younger scientists to assert themselves and fashion an independent role in the formulation of science policy.
Another consequence is that the nature of new initiatives in basic science is dependent entirely on the influence that a few eminent scientists and administrators carry with the political leadership, and the manner in which they choose to exercise it.
