One of the four winners of the Indian Navy initiative has been named as Mrinal Tayal, a woman entrepreneur from Mohali. Tayal, who received his education at Harvard and Tufts University in Boston, has been chosen from a pool of applicants vying for new technological projects under the “Make in India” initiative.

The Ministry of Defence operates a programme called Innovations for Defence Excellence (iDEX) that aims to replace imported items in the inventory with Indian counterparts. High-explosive materials will be used in a project by Tayal’s company, Almerio Defence and Aerospace. In the meanwhile, Micronel Global Engineers has been chosen for the unmanned seaplane project. Technica Fibre Tech has received a project on an optical fiber-based fire and temperature detection system for seagoing vessels, and DV2JS Innovation has received another project.

The government has launched a number of programmes recently to support the Indian economic environment.
