IntroductionHon’ble President of India has desired to formulate Innovation Clubs in Central Universities to recognize the creative and innovative voices at grassroots and connect them to the formal R & D and educational, public services system. Innovators should be mobilized from among the students, faculty, school and college teachers, public services and other fields of social development. If every university becomes a hub for harnessing, the creative energy of our society, then it may become difficult for mediocrity to sustain.
