• We have remarkably skilled engineers in India. But sadly, the benefits of our engineering skills hardly reach the poor, who need it the most. Most of us believe that it is only the government which is to blame for not implementing plans properly.
  • There are very few people who actually think about contributing in this process with their knowledge and skills. The catch is, they do not get the right platform for it.
  • DHITI (Sanskrit for 'An Idea') provides such a platform for students, professors and passionate individuals who aspire for technology to reach the grassroots.
  • By participating in Dhiti, you'll be finding solutions to some of the most pressing problems in the country. For the event, we roll out certain problem statements collected from various NGOs and platforms like techpedia.
  • Over a period of two and a half months, participants work on these problem statements and find technical solutions that are efficient ,feasible and economical. The competition ends here, the idea doesn't.
  • Efforts are made by students and NGOs to implement on the field, some of the more promising solutions ;we are already at the stage of implementing three solutions out of eight received last year and expect to complete them soon.


  • Bhagirath � is an event aiming at inviting technological solutions to the current social problems. It is a belief that technology can be a panacea for several issues at hand .It is a marriage of technology and cause. Technology for social good was a concept and Bhagirath planned to extend this to reality.
  • Participants require knowledge of current technological developments in social sector and preferably have very non-conventional methods to attack the given problem statements.
  • There are two verticals in this event. A team can only participate in one of the verticals.
  • Verticals:
    1. Water and sanitation
    2. Pollution in Urban areas
