The eight-member commission, launched by the Prime Minister recently, will submit its first set of recommendations in October.
The panel would synergise perspectives of people working in various fields, said Mr Pitroda. It will formulate the recommendations with a view to benefitting young people who are the real consumers of knowledge. Also, he emphasised the need for e-governance in the country to facilitate the creation and dissemination of knowledge.
Stressing the importance of preserving traditional knowledge (TK), he said the codification of TK by electronic means would lend pace to the countrys development.
Pointing out that the plethora of identification and eligibility cards for citizens had added to sloth and inefficiency in governance, he said such certification documents could be integrated to provide comprehensive information on a single paper.
