Telangana government’s Information Technology, Electronics and Communication (ITE&C) department has partnered with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to jointly establish the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM) in Hyderabad.

NCAM aims to create and enable a sustainable ecosystem for product innovation in India with emphasis on research, design, development, and testing through collaborative efforts between academia, industry and government using the disruptive technology of Additive Manufacturing.

The release of the National Strategy for Additive Manufacturing by MeitY, and a continued focus on emerging technologies linking additive manufacturing in Telangana’s ICT policies, led to the natural partnership between the Central and State governments to jointly undertake the National initiative, as per a report.

The NCAM will be an independent Section-8 company that is being initiated as a 5 year project and is expected to become self-sustainable at the end of the period.

The Governing Council of 11- members comprising a balanced representation from sections of the sector has been formed to steer the strategic objectives of NCAM.

The members of the Governing Council represent the leading organizations in Additive Manufacturing such as MIDHANI, ARCI, CSIR-CGCRI, MMU PrintCity, IIT-H, General Electric, Wipro 3D, Bharat Forge (Kalyani Group).

The Centre will act as the central agency to promote, foster, and drive adoption of the Additive Manufacturing technology in India with a goal to make the country AtmaNirbhar in the sector.

The formation of NCAM was officially announced during the launch of ICT Policy 2021-26 by Telangana Minister for IT and Industries K.T Rama Rao, who said, “India has a huge potential for innovation across all sectors, yet it currently occupies less than 2 percent of the global AM industry. Additive Manufacturing is a revolution in the sector and alters the approach towards prototyping, complex geometries, small volume manufacturing, and more.”
