Lamenting that the software talent in the country was not being used for the local industry, National Innovation Council Chairman Sam Pitroda said, "Our software people are solving the problems of hospitals of the western world but not of rural India."

"Best brains of the world are busy solving the problem of the rich, who really do not have problems to solve," Pitroda said.

Sam Pitroda on Saturday said aRs.5,000 crore fund to support innovations would be launched soon.

"We have an innovation fund that we are launching... aRs.5,000 crore innovations fund with focus on affordability, scalability and sustainability," Pitroda said on the sidelines of an event here.

"The real innovation has to come from the bottom of the pyramid," he added.

He was speaking to reporters after inaugurating the 5th design centre of eInfochips, a product and semiconductor engineering services company.
"It will be launched in the next few months," he said.

"We will be funding the idea and entrepreneur no matter from which state it will help build up their income capacities".
