Science Innovation Hub: The Government of Delhi has come up with a plan to open a Science Innovation Hub in the city. The hub aims for young minds to engage in scientific temperament. It is estimated to be over five crores and is to be developed in a school run by the Kautilya Enclave. As the education sector has been a major priority to the Government of Delhi, it will be a major boost to the students residing there. This may also attract many students of different states and become a hub of tourism.
