Women Scientist Scheme

careers” arises out of motherhood and family responsibilities. The option for revival of
their profession is presently unavailable due to restrictions in age and qualification and
no system at present addresses these issues. Under this scheme, women scientists
will be encouraged to pursue research in identified areas of bio-medical/ health
