Science and Technology Minister Dr Jitendra Singh today said that in the years to come, India aims to target over 100 billion ‘Blue Economy’ through its Deep Ocean Mission (DOM) and ocean resources. Addressing the scientists in New Delhi today, the Minister reiterated the importance of exploring the ocean to give further fillip to the growth of the country’s economy. He said, this could be a new avenue to supplement the country’s economy to the tune of an estimated 110 billion.

He said, Deep Ocean Mission planned by the Ministry of Earth Sciences will be carried out in collaboration with Indian Space Research Organisation. Dr Singh added that it will be a major step in the direction of integrating and bringing together the efforts of the different streams of science operating under different Ministries in the government. He said, the Deep Ocean Mission will also have far-reaching benefits for the common man as it could help in providing clean drinking water and explore the avenues of desalination of water as well as extracting minerals from the ocean belt.

The Minister also directed the officials of India Meteorological Department to use social media platforms more effectively so that accurate information can be disseminated.
