Indian ecosystem was known to be most serine, sublime and full of blessings of Nature. The entire biosphere of India was driven by the ancient researchers, scientists who had contributed their efforts in life science and souls like Dr. Har Gobind Khorana, awarded Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1968 for researching over 'Genetic Code and Functions in Protein Synthesis', with this in series more contributions were added from India from past few decades. Since from last 10 years, India is gaining prominence as a partner of choice in bilateral cooperation in this field. India is emerging as a Biotechnology Hub in novel biopharmaceuticals production including novel vaccines and antibiotics. Vaccines manufactured in India is procured in large quantities internationally. Domestic companies have developed strong capabilities in vaccine development. The biotechnology industry in India, comprising about 800 companies, is expected to be valued at US$ 11.6 billion in 2017. The government has to invest US$ 5 billion to develop human capital, infrastructure and research initiatives if it is to realize the dream of growing the sector into a US$ 100 billion industry by 2025, as per Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India. In India, Department of Biotechnology (DBT) a governmental body which is separately stands to recognize and affiliate all projects and grants to various researchers and academicians to inspire, innovate and engage with scientific community. India has become a Pioneer in the field of Biotechnology Research and development and incorporating novel technology for climate resilient crops, regenerative medicines, novel vaccines, antibiotics, probiotics and functional foods, future biofuels, industrial enzymes, rapid diagnostics of infectious diseases, novel immunity booster products and bioprocessing & bioprospecting by adopting advanced biotechnologies such as next generation sequencing technology, gene editing methods and specific genetic engineering techniques. Now, we are well aware about sustainable exploitation of genetic biodiversity present in the Indian subcontinent..

About Satna

Satna is unofficially acknowledged as the Cement capital of India, given the preponderance of vast amounts of Limestone deposits in and around Satna, and every major Cement player, including Birla Group, Jaypee Group, Reliance Group, Prism Group, having established its cement plants or in the process of establishing new plants or upgrading the capacity of existing plants. Satna is more than 150-years-old Railway station on the premier Kolkata-Mumbai route. Satna city is home to many architectural wonders and heritage sites including 10th Century world-famous Khajuraho temples depicting the theme that life is a celebration in all its multifarious forms including Kama and conjugal art, and Buddhist caves, Panna forest reserve known as one of the most bio-diverse sites in central India, as well more than 100-year old Panna diamond mines. While moving ahead with modernization beyond the existing air-strip, Satna maintains its pristine traditional glory endowed to it by many succeeding dynasties. Other eminent locales within 30-100 kilometers of Satna are city of Rewa, the home of White Tiger; Maihar town, famous for annual pan-India festivals of classical music for last hundreds of years and for its nationally-renowned temple of Devi Goddess atop a high hill, which is now connected with ropeway. The unspoilt traditions and life style of the bygone era can be experienced first-hand here at Satna along with sprinkling of resorts and hotels.
