[MTC Global] Scientists, professors, students to ‘March for Science’ across India today

The scientific community will on Wednesday 'March for Science' across the country, particularly in state capitals, demanding an increase in funding for science and that government policies be drafted based on scientific research. The rally is along the lines of the global one held earlier this year, on April 22, which was attended by over a million people from 600 cities. Scientists, professors, research scholars, students and science activists are expected to participate in the rally today.

Through the protest, the scientific community is demanding an allocation of at least three per cent of India's GDP towards scientific and technological research and 10 per cent towards education. Second, it is appealing to stop propagation of unscientific, obscurantist ideas and religious intolerance, in conformance with Article 51A of the Constitution. Third, to ensure education system impart ideas that are supported by scientific evidence. And last, for policies to be enacted based on scientific evidence.
