Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with participants of Toycathon-2021 on Thursday via video conferencing.

Toycathon 2021 was jointly launched by the Ministry of Education, WCD Ministry, MSME Ministry, DPIIT, Textile Ministry, I&B Ministry and AICTE on 5th January this year to crowd-source innovative toys and games ideas.

Around 1.2 lakh participants from across India registered and submitted more than 17000 ideas for the Toycathon 2021. Out of which 1567 ideas have been shortlisted for the three days online Toycathon Grand Finale, being held from today to 24th June.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this Grand Finale will have teams with digital toy ideas, while a separate physical event will be organized for non-digital toy concepts. AIR correspondent reports, Union Minister of Education will also be present on the occasion.

Country’s domestic market as well as the global toy market offers a huge opportunity to our manufacturing sector. Toycathon-2021 is aimed at boosting the Toy Industry in India to help it capture a wider share of the toy market.
