In 1980 when Smt Indira Gandhi was Prime Minister and Sh A. B. A. Ghani Khan Choudhury was union Minister Energy, Coal and irrigation. Sh Choudhury went USA to attend some official program. While returning back from US the stopover was in Frankfurt, in airport VIP lounge some foreign journalists asked Sh Choudhury regarding India’s planes and programs to meet energy requirements. Sudden unexpected situation he advocated the use of Gobar Gas to generate electricity etc. By the time he reaches India Smt Gandhi snatched the energy ministry from Sh Choudhury.
Recently on 25th Union Urban Development Minister Sh M. Venkaiah Naidu inaugurated a two-day international conference on ‘Advanced Avionics’ at the Research Centre Imarat (RCI), DRDO at Hyderabad.
The hidden agenda to invite Sh M. Venkaiah Naidu for such technical issue and which is not related to his ministry and not related to honorable academic interest was to ease the affect of Modi ji’s well derived media created line “ Chalta Hai” attitude of DRDO.
Sh M. Venkaiah Naidu and Sh G. Satheesh Reddy, Director RCI belongs to same District, Nellore and the distance of their villages between only 84 Km.
The line “ Chalta Hai” was seriously taken by DRDO in different means if the DRDO top officials really want to reply the country they should prove and set example by their output. Beside this sh Avinash Chander whiningly repeated said in his speech at seminar that we put video defence minister and Prime Minister Speeches in our website, the “ Chalta Hai” is out of context.
श्री अविनाशचन्दरजी “सचाई से वही लोग डरते है जो गलत होते है बाकि लोग सचाई का सामना गंभीरता से करते है”. खैर आप को इन सब बातो के लिए समय कँहा आप तो बस इन्कॉम्पिटेंट लोगो को प्रमोशन और एक्सटेंसशन और कंसलटेंसी बांटने में ही व्यस्त रहते है या EDK MOU in US जैसे मोके की तलाश में बाकि डीआरडीओ व् देश के लिए कंहा समय है I
Union Urban Development Minister Sh M. Venkaiah Naidu’s inaugural speech at ‘Advanced Avionics’ there was no any avionics technology references but onion, mosquito repellents, mobile water treatment plants, high nutrient value packaged food and Boi-toilts topics were major concern.
The truth of DRDO’s Bio toilets by IIT Kanpur – Bio-toilets developed by the Indian Railways and Defence Research and Development Organization have earned praise from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but IIT scientists say they are neither environment-friendly nor suitable for trains.
IIT-Kanpur and Research Design and Standards Organisation (RDSO) had developed a zero discharge toilet that the railways tried but rejected. Tare said the zero discharge toilet was superior to the bio-toilet project. “The bio-toilet is based on misinformation,” he said. “With every flush, untreated waste is expelled through different levels and finally on the tracks.”
Why the DRDO win race from IIT K because they passed the mechanism of fooling/ provision of motivation to the ministry bureaucrats to the railway officials. The game practice was developed by DRDO TOT division in the time of Maj Gen Umang Kappor.
It is purely money game between railway official and DRDO officials with help of companies who got TOT with DRDO.
The claim for rural area bio toilet technology not new according to the Nordic Ministercounsil in 1982 there were 300,000 composting toilets being used throughout Scandinavia.
DRDO signed MOU and “DRDO to install bio toilet systems in 1000 gram panchayats across the country,” Ramesh told. (UPA Minister Mr Jayaram Ramesh)
“We (the Ministry) will pay for it completely,” the Minister said.
DRDO will install these bio toilet systems in 1000 with their beloved suppliers who got TOT with them at undisclosed premium.
As per DRDE senior scientist the so called Bacteria from Antarctica of DRDO bio-toilets commonly available in cow dung.
As per wikipedia James Bannehr, he took out a patent for the process (No. 1316, dated 28 May 1860). Among his works bearing on the subject were: “The Advantages of the Dry Earth System”, 1868; “The Impossibility overcome: or the Inoffensive, Safe, and Economical Disposal of the Refuse of Towns and Villages”, 1870; “The Dry Earth System”, 1871; “Town Refuse, the Remedy for Local Taxation”, 1872, and “National Health and Wealth promoted by the general adoption of the Dry Earth System”, 1873.
The game is in the name of technology and DRDO brand name just increased the price in multifold and loot the tax payers money.
Inauguration of first fixed bio-toilet at Tata Steel works – The bio-toilet uses an innovative, affordable, durable and eco-friendly construction solution developed by Tata Steel under the brand `Nest-In’ and uses the Nest-In methodology for wall construction and has a bio-digester for solid waste disposal. The unit has two toilets of 27 sq ft , one each for male and female workers. Both the toilets are fitted with electrical and plumbing fittings, etc.
Why not they go for DRDO bio-toilet? if it worth economical viable and Rural Ministry adopted for mass installation, in this connection a scientist from DRDO already complaint to CVC.

Venkaiah pushes for promotion of DRDO civilian technologies
Union Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said that his ministry intended to promote bio-digester toilets and other civilian technologies developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in a big way.
Talking to reporters after inaugurating a two-day international conference on ‘Advanced Avionics’ at the Research Centre Imarat (RCI) here on Monday, he said there was a need to take advantage of science and technology to better the lives of common people. He said that although there was no dearth of onion production, there was still a shortage. Technology developed to preserve onions for longer periods can be used to overcome the shortage.
Citing examples of mosquito repellents, mobile water treatment plants, high nutrient value packaged food and medical equipment developed by DRDO, he said these were no ordinary innovations. Observing that the aim was to make the life of common more comfortable, he said that his ministry would OFFER incentives to State governments to implement necessary schemes.
Mr. Naidu said that a new mission in place of JNNRUM was in the advanced stage of finalisation. As part of the nationwide launch of Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhana Yojana, he will inaugurate the scheme in Hyderabad on August 28. Under the scheme, a person having a bank account will become eligible for life insurance worth Rs.1 lakh.
Earlier, inaugurating the conference, he lauded the RCI’s contribution to the development of different missiles. He said, “We have achieved great strides in missile technologies. But we are importing most of our defence equipment. The government wants to reduce this considerably. We want to establish manufacturing facilities in India to cut imports,” the Minister added.
Recalling that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that India should be able to export military hardware to other nations in the next 10 years, he said that a large quality manufacturing base was required to achieve it.
Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister and Director-General DRDO, Avinash Chander, referred to different technologies developed by RCI for missiles over the years and said whenever India was challenged by the denial of technology, the country rose to the occasion. “You deny, we prosper has been our motto,” he quipped.
V.G. Sekaran, Director General, Missiles and Strategic Systems, DRDO, said the field of avionics was witnessing fast-paced technological innovations and wanted scientists to configure systems that would take care of future requirements.
RCI Director, G. Satheesh Reddy, who gave an overview of the work done at RCI in the last 25 years, said the institution was gearing up to undertake futuristic research and make products that would be the first of their kind.
The conference is being organised to mark the conclusion of the silver jubilee celebrations of RCI.
