The Kerala government was willing to hand over more state-managed Science and Technology institutions if the Centre shows interest in taking them over, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said here today.

He was speaking after presenting the prestigious Kerala Sasthrapuraskaram 2013 to Dr M S Valiathan, National Research Professor, eminent cardiologist and founder-director of Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST).

The Union Cabinet had now decided to take over the Thiruvananthapuram-based Centre for Earth Science Studies (CESS) and had expressed interest in Palode-based Jawaharlal Nehru Tropical Botanical Garden and Research Institute (JNTBGRI). A final decision on JNTBGRI is expected soon, the Chief Minister said.

Chandy said his government faced several constraints in the upkeep of Research and Development institutions, but with the Centre’s assistance they had an opportunity to flourish and become highly productive centres benefiting both the state and the country.
