The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) was established in the year 1995 and was reconstituted in the year 2000 with the merger of the Department of Industrial Development. Earlier, separate Ministries of Small Scale Industries & Agro and Rural Industries (SI &A& RI) and Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises (HI&PE) were created in October 1999. The department was earlier called the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion and was renamed DPIIT in January 2019.
In 2018, matters related to e-commerce were transferred to the Department and in 2019, the Department has been given charge for matters related to Internal Trade, the welfare of traders and their employees, and Startups. The role of DPIIT is to promote/accelerate the industrial development of the country by facilitating investment in new and upcoming technology, foreign direct investment and support the balanced development of industries.
About Andhra University
Andhra University is not just one of the oldest educational institutions in the country but is also the first to be conceived as a residential and teaching-cum-affiliating University, mainly devoted to post-graduate teaching and research.
The people of the State have an emotional attachment to the institution since it came into being after a prolonged and collective struggle of the Telugu elite for a University in the educationally backward northern Circars and Ceded districts of the erstwhile Madras Presidency.
Andhra University was constituted in the year 1926 by the Madras Act of 1926. The 94-year-old institution is fortunate to have Sir C.R. Reddy as its founder Vice-Chancellor, as the steps taken by this visionary proved to be fruitful in the long run.
Launched in July 2018, IPTSE or Intellectual Property Talent Search Examination is the first & one-of-its-kind annual ‘IP Olympiad’ for Intellectual Property Rights in India that tests the knowledge of an individual on patents, designs, copyright, designs, geographical indications, and trade secret. IPTSE is supported by several organizations that believe in the knowledge-based economy such as ASSOCHAM, ERICSSON, and different state governments, the Ministry of MSME, Govt. of India, and the Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India.
We’ve also received support from state and private universities to further IP knowledge in the country. Check out all our partner institutions.
The exam is customized for school and university students on the basis of their streams, including law, engineering and technology, fashion, design, researchers, and media students. This exam also certifies students’ knowledge in copyright, patent, trademark, geographical indication, industrial design, and trade secrets.
