Ludhiana, June 27
The Central Institute of Post-Harvest Engineering and Technology (CIPHET) has granted three Ramp;D licenses of its recently developed portable smart Ultraviolet-C Disinfection System (UViC) technology to Ishinder Dhir, Tagore Nagar, for its commercial production.
The young entrepreneur came to know about the technology through news on the ICAR website, Twitter, TV channels and newspapers. He contacted the institute for the UViC technology and took a license on Saturday.
He expressed his confidence in capturing the market as the device was compact and much needed at public locations such as offices, shops, hospitals, and would play a key role in the fight against ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Dhir, a young businessman, said, “It is high time that all youth should venture into making India self-reliant by focusing on making indigenous devices, equipment and contribute to the development of the country.” He plans to come up with the device on a large scale within minimum possible time.
The Director, ICAR-CIPHET, Dr RK Singh, leads the team, which invented the device.
