KJA-Technical Committee (KJA-TC)
KJA will need to consider a large number of proposals-either received from KJA Members or generated through KJA discussions or requirement stated by various Departments of Government or even suo-moto generated by KJA itself-to accomplish its mandate. It is envisaged that each proposal would need to be carefully considered on technical merit, knowledge relevance, innovation and, more importantly, the benefits that can accrue to the state-both short-term based on KJA efforts and long-term by state implementation and other mechanisms. To undertake technical evaluation of the proposals, KJA constituted KJA-Technical Committee on September 2, 2014 under the Chairmanship of Prof. Sadagopan. KJA-TC is empowered to consider all proposals on behalf of KJA and recommend technical/financial approvals or make any recommendations, on behalf of KJA, for further action.
