“Pioneering MoU focuses on semiconductors, quantum tech, and drones—boosting India’s ‘Make in India’ drive.”

In a strategic move set to enhance India’s manufacturing capabilities, Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), a Navratna defence PSU, has partnered with the Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi. This collaboration, announced on April 15th in Himachal Pradesh, aims to propel forward advancements in semiconductors, quantum technologies, and drones. This initiative is a robust response to the Government of India’s ‘Make in India’ directive, promising to fortify domestic production and technological sovereignty.

Under the newly signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), BEL will join forces with the academic and research prowess of IIT-Mandi. This partnership is tailored to tap into the complementary strengths of both institutions. The focus will be on intensifying research and development in three critical areas: semiconductors, quantum technologies, and drones, which are pivotal for modern electronic and defence applications.

The collaboration is also a significant step towards the indigenisation of products and solutions provided by BEL. By integrating cutting-edge research from IIT-Mandi, BEL aims to enhance the performance and reliability of its offerings. “This MoU with IIT-Mandi will equip us with innovative insights and technologies that are essential for maintaining a competitive edge in a rapidly evolving industry,” stated a BEL spokesperson.

The initiative aligns seamlessly with the ‘Make in India’ campaign, aiming to transform India into a global manufacturing hub. The partnership is expected to not only advance technological capabilities but also stimulate job creation and economic growth. This strategic alignment underscores the commitment of both BEL and IIT-Mandi to contribute to national development through technological innovation.

This union between a leading public sector unit and a top-tier academic institution marks a promising step forward in India’s quest for technological independence and leadership in the global arena.
