President Kovind visits exhibition and inaugurates new facilities at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Trombay
President Ram Nath Kovind visited an exhibition on Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) technologies at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in Trombay, Mumbai on May 15 and also inaugurated DAE facilities there, stated an official release.

He said that India is recognised as one of the leading nations in the use of nuclear technologies across multiple disciplines, ranging from energy to agriculture and from medicine to waste management, however, the journey towards excelling in this domain started at BARC almost six decades ago. Since then, the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) has grown to become a multidisciplinary organisation with facilities spread across the nation, the release added.

He urged the scientists to accelerate the research in using nuclear technology in the areas of healthcare, food and agriculture, water resources management and environmental protection leading to nation building.

Here are the excerpts from the released address of President Kovind on the occasion:

-Atomic Energy has become a reality and that too despite long periods of time marked by denial of technology from other nations. The whole world today acknowledges the self-reliant nature of India's nuclear establishment.

 -What is less known to the common people, is the work that all of you do for using nuclear technology in the areas of healthcare, food and agriculture, water resources management and environmental protection. Research in nuclear medicine is widely used both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

-Research in nuclear science has also benefited our food processing and agriculture sector and thus directly benefited our farmers.

-We have some of the best scientific minds in this gathering and your minds must use the power and potential of science to solve the problems of the country and contribute towards realising economic growth along with social justice and equity. All of you are fortunate that you have the capacity to make a difference to the lives of our people and to make our nation truly prosperous and secure.
