Visakhapatnam: Active research on industrial problems particularly with multidisciplinary approach is needed in the country to file maximum number of patents, observed Chief Scientist of Council for Scientific Industrial Research (CSIR)-Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) Dr KSMS Raghava Rao here on Friday.

Interacting with faculty and research scholars at GITAM University, he noted that sharing of thoughts on one subject with multiple angles would give new dimension to a research project rather than a single minded approach.
Dr Raghavarao who filed 25 International patents and 50 Indian patents, pointed that the present patenting system in the country needed technical changes to encourage the researchers. The country is not progressing in food production and processing sector at expected level because of reducing agricultural land and lack of food processing facilities. He suggested that like cooperative milk societies the country need cooperating agricultural societies in villages to encourage the farmers. He also suggested that the cold storages, mobile processing industries, primary food processing units near agricultural lands would strengthen the agricultural sector in the country.
While interacting with the expert, GITAM University President Dr MVVS Murthy said that the University is actively involved in biotech research programmes and the researchers developed bio-pesticide and distributing free of cost to farmers with the assistance of NABARD. He also informed that the Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MOFPI) sanctioned a major research project to GITAM University to train the rural people on several food processing units. Research organisations like CFTRI should come forward to do joint research projects with Universities, he felt.
GITAM University Vice-Chancellor Prof. G Subrahmanyam stressed the importance of research in Universities. The UGC Affairs Director Prof Ch Ramakrishna and other GITAM officials participated in the programme.
