The proposed legislation would give Indian universities and institutions such as the Indian Council of Medical Research and CSIR the ability to stake claims on discoveries they make for commercialisation on a large scale through government funding and otherwise.The setting up of a venture capital fund to help promote funding of early stage innovations by young scientists and engineers to ensure domestic growth is thus much favored.
