Technology and Development Solutions Cell is a resource center for providing technology-based solutions for the development sector.  TDSC provides resources and services to undertake projects that deliver outputs via academic research outputs, consulting, outreach modules, entrepreneurship guidance, etc. TDSC not only aims at delivering solutions to external stakeholders but primarily uses the academic platform to engage students directly in development-related problems and solutions. The resources of the center can be leveraged by faculty and students of IIT Bombay and other colleges to provide solutions to the community and various development stakeholders.
