In a bid to promote research in cutting edge areas of science, the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) plans to launch a new scheme called "Supra" (Scientific and Useful Profound Research Advancement) to fund scientists. The scheme has designed as a part of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 100-day transformative ideas. The aim of this scheme is to fund new scientific and engineering breakthroughs with global impact. This will promote new areas of study, novel scientific concepts, new products, and technologies. It will also attract high-quality research proposals consisting of new hypotheses or challenge present ones and provide innovative solutions.
