DR. AS RAO

Electronics has a revolutionary impact on science, industry and society and it is a subject which is in the vanguard of technological progress and consequently in a state of extremely rapid development. It is therefore essential that this industry should be planned and organized from the very beginning in such a way as to build into it the capacity to keep abreast of progress in the rest of the world without continuing dependence on foreign assistance ". (Report of Bhabha Committee on Electronics constituted by the Govt. of India in 1963).

The growth and performance of Electronics Corporation of India Ltd. (ECIL) stand as a testimony to the vision of the Bhabha Committee. Dr A S Rao, an illustrious member of this Committee, translated this philosophy of self-reliance in Electronics into action, the unique success of which has now been universally acknowledged. Under the stewardship of Dr A S Rao, ECIL grew into a major electronics complex supplying to the nation a wide range of electronic systems, instruments and components for diverse applications like nuclear power, defence, communications, agriculture, medicine and scientific research, demonstrating the possibility of a very high degree of self-reliance in the field of electronics in the country.
