The woeful state of the infrastructure in Science and Technology in India is well acknowledged. Some years ago UGC came forward with an imaginative scheme called COSIST for strengthening Infrastructure in University Science Departments. Funds in the range of Rs 50 lakhs were given to selected Departments and kept several of these departments in animation. This scheme has worked reasonably well. It is understood that following the recommendation of the Scientific Advisory Committee to the Cabinet a similar scheme will soon be implemented.With the acronym FIST (Funds for Infrastructure in Science and Technology), DST has called for proposals from across the nation.
