Addressing the 70th foundation day of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Singh said conventional scientific disciplines and approaches were proving unequal to dealing with complex developmental challenges.

"We have not been able to make an impact on a world scale commensurate with our large scientific manpower pool," Singh said addressing scientists.

In his address, which was webcast across all 37 CSIR laboratories, the Prime Minister lauded the achievements of the Council over its 70 years of existence but asked them not to rest on the laurels.
