Answer

Correct Option is Both 1 and 2

In a major boost to Mission Raksha Gyan Shakti, a MOU was signed between the Intellectual Property Facilitation Cell (IPFC), Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence and National Research Development Corporation (NRDC), Ministry of Science and Technology. The partnership between IPFC and NRDC is expected to bridge the capacity shortfall and promote a culture of Innovation and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in Indian Defence industry. The Department of Defence Production has instituted a new framework titled ‘Mission Raksha Gyan Shakti’ which aims to inculcate Intellectual Property Right (IPR) culture in Indian defence manufacturing ecosystem. The Directorate General of Quality Assurance (DGQA) has been entrusted with the responsibility of coordinating and implementing the programme. The event showcased salient inventions and innovations achieved by DRDO, Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSUs) and Ordnance Factories (OFs) which have resulted in successful filing of Intellectual Property Right (IPR) applications. Hence both the statements are correct. The Action Plan 2019-20 of MRGS has also been approved by Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh, which includes training of additional 20,000 personnel from Public / Private Sector Industry and Armed Forces on relevance of IP Culture to Indian Defence manufacturing industry and instituting a framework which enables full utilization of new ideas and innovation towards achieving self-reliance in defence sector.
