The Director of Ekta Incubation Centre Prof. Dr. Sukhendu Samajdar is also of the opinion that colleges should encourage its students to go for patenting of their innovations, so that they can start their own ventures in future. But they must first know the rules for such patenting, before such initiatives. All the participants of the workshop were awarded certificates by MAKAUT.
The very aim of Ekta Incubation Centre is to give impetus to the young generation for new innovations and ultimately start their own ventures. The purpose is to lead them towards self-reliance, turn them into employers, rather than job-seekers and ultimately benefit the society at large. The Hon'able Vice-Chancellor of MAKAUT Prof. Maitra gives stress on this aspect of encouraging the students for new start-ups in a wider sc
le. Ekta wants to move in the same direction, echoed Prof. Samajdar.
