Presenting awards to six winners of the first-ever India-Singapore Hackathon here on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the platform would boost technology, innovation and youth power.

The top six teams -- three each from India and Singapore -- were chosen after a final pitching session.

The winning teams from India were from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur), National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT Trichy) and MIT College of Engineering, Pune. 

Among the winning teams from Singapore were Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

"Platforms like the Singapore-India Hackathon serve as excellent opportunities for our youngsters to showcase their work. They also serve as forums to learn about pioneering innovations by youngsters from other nations and institutes. A win-win for our students!," Modi said.

A first prize of SGD 10,000, a second prize of SGD 6,000 and a third prize of SGD 4,000 was announced for each of the three winners from India and Singapore.

After meeting the winners of the hackathon, Modi said he was "impressed by their passion and commitment towards solving problems our world faces".

The Prime Minister arrived in Singapore on Wednesday on a two-day visit to attend the East Asia Summit, Asean-India informal meet and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Summit.

He also delivered the keynote address at the Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) on Wednesday.

Twenty teams each from both countries comprising university and college students were selected for the Hackathon. Each team had three students and one dedicated mentor. 

They participated in the 36-hour long hackathon working on 20 problem statements. The hackathon ended with the "Grande Finale" on Wednesday. 

The problem statements for the hackathon were in the areas of mapping, synchronised output of diverse social media, shared digital identity verification, effective number estimate, space management and allotment, effective learning, and personal security. -IANS

The joint Indo-Japanese counter-insurgency military drill — ‘Dharma Guardian’ — concluded on Wednesday at Vairengte in Mizoram.

“The primary focus of the exercise was to train and equip the contingents to undertake joint counter-insurgency and counter-terrorist operations in urban and semi-urban terrain,” a Defence Ministry release said here.

It is a significant step towards fostering military and diplomatic ties between the two countries, it added.

The participants were initially familiarised with each other’s organisational structure, tactical drills and planning process before graduating to joint tactical exercises.

The contingents honed their tactical and technical skills in a wide spectrum of counter-insurgency operations including joint training on weapons and equipment, field training exercises and handling of improved explosive devices.

Commanders at various levels from both sides were exercised to work in close coordination to receive and collate information jointly, plan operations and issue suitable orders to respective integrated groups.

“The exercise provided and ideal platform for both contingents to share their operational experience and expertise while also instrumental in broadening the interoperability and cooperation between the armies of India and Japan,” the release said.


The Indian Air Force on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that there was no clear definition of the generation of fighter aircraft and that the existing fighters with it are of three-and-a-half or fourth generation.

The IAF officers’ response came during the hearing on a batch of petitions on the French Rafale fighter deal.

The Air Vice Marshal T. Chalapathi told the bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice K.M. Joseph that the force was looking for fifth generation fighter aircraft as there was no new induction of fighters since 1985 when Dassault’s Mirage were acquired.

He told the bench that though HAL continues to produce Sukhoi 30 and Light Combat Aircraft, there is need for fifth generation stealth aircraft with advanced avionics.

AS CJI Gogoi asked “Your requirement is 5th generation aircraft”, Air Vice Marshal T. Chalapathi said the requirement is for a few squadrons of 4th and 5th generation fighter aircraft.

No sooner than the AG concluded his arguments, CJI Gogoi asked all the senior Air Force officers to go.

“Air Marshal and Vice-Marshals can go back. It is a different war game here in the court. You can go to your own war rooms”, CJI Gogoi told the senior officers who were called to the court to address queries by the bench.
