5 Innovations That Can Transform Rural India


1. Bulbs That Act As Inverters in Power Cuts: Stirred by frequent power outages affecting children’s studies in villages, Uday Bhatia developed inverter bulbs that offer 8-10 hours of power backup during outages. The cost? Just Rs 250! ‘Uday’ bulbs now light up over 7,000 households across India.

2. Solar Panels On wheels: Pradeep Kumar’s portable solar panel trolleys
can be attached to tractors, letting farmers move them between fields and their homes. Farmers earn more, generate electricity anywhere, and don’t have to worry about their panels getting stolen!

3. An IoT tent That Keeps Veggies Fresh for 30 Days: Nikky and Rashmi Jha’s super-simple Sabji kothi uses IoT to boost the shelf life of vegetables and cut post-harvest losses for farmers. Compared to traditional fridges, it has 10 times the capacity, 100 times the saving on the electricity required and only costs half the total amount!

4. A Zero-Electricity, Zero-Chemical Water Filter : IIT dropout Anjan Mukherjee’s ‘fit and forget’ device transforms contaminated borewell water
into clean drinking water in 30 minutes. Fittable on hand pumps,Taraltec Reactors harness physics & bio-mimicry to destroy microbes in the water. No maintenance, no electricity, no chemicals—just pure innovation!

5. Solar Insect Trap to Protect Crops : Karibasappa MG’s low-cost solar insect trap is eliminating the need for pesticides! Using ultraviolet LED lights to trap insects, it doesn’t harm honey bees and is already helping thousands of farmers worldwide!
