A new society called “Knowledge Society” is emerging in the 21st century. An efficient utilization of the existing knowledge can create comprehensive wealth for the nation in the form of better health, education and infrastructure. Whether a nation has emerged as a knowledge society or not is judged by how effectively the country deals with knowledge creation, organization, dissemination and utilization.
