3. Centre for Science in Villages (CSV)Devendra Kumar is a disciple of Gandhi and follows the philosophy developed by the Mahatma.After years spent as a manager in an Indian corporation, Devendra left his job and moved to avillage to study the life of villagers. He then created the "Center of Science for Villages" in the cityof Wardha, near Nagpur, Maharastra, in the center of India.The Center of Science for Villages is a government organization, although it is mostly responsible for itsown funding through various research programs. Its primary goal is to improve life conditions in the Indianrural areas.The techniques developed by the CSV range from mud housing technology to various methods of energyproduction or food growing. Hygiene is also a preoccupation, as well as favoring the development of localalternate industries.These techniques are simple to use, costless and environment-safe, based on local materials. Training tovillagers is provided in parallel, so they can pass their experience to others. This favors the creation of alocal know-how that can be used to create jobs, trades, etc...This is in agreement with the Gandhian philosophy whose target is that villages should be self sufficient:the use of these "appropriate technologies" brings independence to villagers and helps them to live withdignity.The focus areas are as follows: - Bamboo & Mud Housing Total Sanitation systems Renewable Energy Rock Bee Handmade Paper Tools & Equipments Pottery Organic Farming Food Processing Technology for SHGs Training
4. Rural Technology User Group (RUTAG), IIT MadrasRUTAG for Tamil Nadu was established in Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in June 2004 to helprural Tamilnadu upgrade their technologies.

5. Media Lab Asia / Indian Institute of Information TechnologyMedia Lab Asia and Indian Institute of Information Technology have jointly developed a web based,personalized agro advisory system which uses Information Technology to solve unscientific agriculturalpractices called ‘eSagu’.Sagu means cultivation in Telugu local language, the region in which the project started.It exploits the advances in Information Technology to build a cost-effective agricultural informationdissemination system to disseminate expert agriculture knowledge to the farming community to improvethe crop productivity.So far eSagu has been operationalized it in 300 villages covering six districts for 50 agriculture cropsbesides fish and prawn.eSagu has received recognition in different forums as listed below: - eSagu was declared the best e-governance project at the Computer Society of India (CSI) and Nihilent e-Governance Awards for 2005-06 ([Nihilent e-Governance Awards eSagu features as a select entry among worldwide latest novel Internet applications in the book "Innovative Application Case study 2006" published by Institute for Information Industry, a not-for- profit Think Tank for Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs in Taipei. eSagu was listed as one of the top three e-Governance projects (the other two are BHOOMI and SAMPARK) of India in the video film on “Next e Governance Plan”, November 2005.
6. Smokeless Cooking Stove-Kishor KanthikarIn the rural part of India the main energy source for cooking is conventional stove using either firewood orcharcoal as source of fuel. This stove has many disadvantages viz. extremely low fuel efficiency, highsmoke emission etc. This leads to many kinds of health hazards to the village women and uncontrolleduse of fossil fuel sources.Considering the above facts an improved version which is not only smokeless but also very energyefficient towards the consumption of the fuel was designed. In the design charcoal is used as primary fuelwhich is commonly available and it can be generated by new gasification techniques from the agro waste.The design features are as follows: - a. The stove consists of four main parts i) support base ii) fuel chamber iii) fresh air circulation duct iv) forced air inlet. b. Support bas: this of special design having pyramid shape concentrating the cosmic energy. c. Fuel Chamber: This is also of special design having pyramid shape which lead to drastic increase in the energy efficiency of fuel consumption. This shape increases the heat by about 20%. d. Fresh Air Circulation duct: Extra care has been taken to provide fresh air to the fuel burning with minimum pressure drop. This leads to extremely low force to drive the fresh air into the stove. e. Forced Air Inlet: Two options have been kept for the choice of the user. a) Manual hand blower which can be operated by either hand or by foot. b) Extra low power battery operated fan blower. This is of special design in which the battery last for about 12 hours of continual operation. The further option of rechargeable batteries with Solar Photo Voltaic Panel is also available. These features are at extra cost. f. All the above combination make this stove a Renewable Energy based Eco friendly source of heat energy for cooking.This improved design provides about 50% increase in fuel efficiency.FUEL AND GHG SAVING : Due to increase in efficiency even if 3% of the Indians switchover to this stoveit can save about 3.2 million Tons of fossil fuel and about 6.7 million Tons of CO2 emission.
COST BENEFIT: The conventional stove cost about Rs. 300/- plus consumption of fuel (charcoal) costingRs. 8/kg for a family of 5 persons i.e. cost of fuel per year would be Rs. 2920/yr. Thus the effective cost atthe first year end would be Rs.3220. As against this the new improved stove will cost Rs.450 and the fuelcost will be reduced by 50%. Thus the effective cost at the first year end would be Rs.1910. Thus the netsaving at the first year end itself would be Rs.860. From the second year onwards the yearly savingwould be Rs.1010/yr.7. Villgro Stores A unique cash and carry store- VLE rural distribution channel for innovative products and servicesVIMPL to showcase a scalable and profitable marketing model for innovative products and services inrural India which creates sustainable positive impact on people’s lifeOut of the 770 million people in rural India more than 75% depend on agriculture & diary and 78% ofthese farmers have less than 5 acres of land. Average agriculture and dairy production in India is 30-50%of the world’s highest average productivity. The low productivity is caused by poor access of innovativeproduct and services to large number of small holders as most of the distribution and extension servicesstop at feeder towns or villages with 1000+ population. Even if some minimalistic and functional retailchannel reaches these villages, they are not configured for new product and services, resulting in extraordinary delay in technology adoption
VIMPL is creating on ground infrastructure and organization to scale up quickly and profitably.In its last mile intervention to take innovations to market, VIMPL is guided by following principal Improve affordability of innovations in rural markets Make innovations accessible to users in rural markets Increase engagement with the end users by giving them a comprehensive set of products and services VILLAGE LEVEL ENTREPRENURES CREATE EXTENSION AND SALES POINTS INSIDE VILLAGES AND ARE SERVED BY VIMPL STORE IN A CENTRAL BIGGER VILLAGE VIMPL WILL CREATE 1BILLION USD OF WEALTH The Model creates unparallel reach in the rural India by creating FOR SMALL AND sales and field extension points in villages.
