  Welcome

TAAS is an outcome of the 88th session of Indian Science Congress which was held on the campus of the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi in January 2001 under the President ship of Dr. R.S. Paroda. The theme of the Congress was "Food, Nutrition and Environmental Security". During the Congress, Hon'ble Prime Minister of India Shri Atal Bihari Vajapaye released the following Vision Statement:
"Our goal to make India a leading nation in the world in the new century, hinges critically on how successfully we take science to the people and create a stronger scientific temper in our society."

 

"By 2020, India will be free of poverty, hunger and malnutrition, and become an environmentally safe country, through efficient and sustainable use of our human, natural and other resources."

The vision statement concluded stating "Hunger-free India is an idea whose time has come. Let us launch a science-based crusade for elimination of hidden hunger and malnutrition".

TAAS is a partner in leading this crusade.
