Hi Bankersdaily Aspirant,

                         “First we thought the PC was a calculator. Then we found out how to

turn numbers into letters with ASCII — and we thought it was a typewriter.

Then we discovered graphics, and we thought it was a television. With the World

Wide Web, we’ve realized it’s a brochure.”

Technology plays a vital role in our day to day life. DIPP sets up India’s first Technology and  Innovation Support Center in Punjab.The center would be established at the Punjab’s Patent Information Center under the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) programme.


DIPP is an Acronym of  Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) 

Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion is responsible for formulation and implementation of promotional and developmental measures for growth of the industrial sector, keeping in view the national priorities and socio-economic objectives.

While individual Administrative Ministries look after the production, distribution, development and planning aspects of specific industries allocated to them, Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion is responsible for the overall Industrial Policy.

Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion monitors the industrial growth and production, in general, and selected industrial sectors, such as cement, paper and pulp, leather, tyre and rubber, light electrical industries, consumer goods, consumer durables, light machine tools, light industrial machinery, light engineering industries etc., in particular.


The objective of the TISC is to stimulate a dynamic, vibrant and balanced Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) system in India to foster creativity and innovation, thereby promoting entrepreneurship and enhancing social, economic and cultural development by establishing a network of TISCs in India.

WIPO’s Technology and Innovation Support Center (TISC) program provides innovators in developing countries with access to locally based, high quality technology information and related services, helping them to exploit their innovative potential and to create, protect, and manage their Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs).

The Cell for IPR Promotion and Management (CIPAM) is designated as the National Focal Point for the TISC national network.
