State Science & Technology Programme
The initiative to establish State Councils for Science & Technology was first taken in 1971 when the then Minister for S&T and Chairman, National Committee for Science & Technology (NCST), Shri C. Subramaniam wrote to Chief Ministers of all the States stressing that irrespective of large investments of the Central Government in S&T in various sectors and institutional infrastructure, the Central S&T Agencies must take the States along if the development goals are to be attained. By the end of Fifth Five Year Plan, Karnataka, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal were the four States, who had established their State S&T Councils.
