Government Policy Report l July 2021
The Government of India has conducted the “Toycathon, 2021” to boost the manufacturing of Indian culture andvalues-based toys and innovative games. This can help to model positive behaviours among the children as well as the youth of the country. Toys are the source of knowledge for children and can present different perspectives to them. These are the first and forever companions of human life. Right from rattles to costly play stations, every individual has beautiful memories of these toys. To tap the enormous opportunities and innovation in this sector, the Government has conducted this event for the first time.
This was a joint initiative of Education Ministry, Women and Child Development Ministry, Ministry of MSME, Textile Ministry, Information & Broadcasting Ministry, and AICTE. It will help to create a reservoir of ideas related to innovative toys and gaming solutions.
