New Delhi, June 22: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with participants of Toycathon-2021 on June 24 at 11 am via video conferencing.

Toycathon 2021 was jointly launched by the Ministry of Education, WCD Ministry, MSME Ministry, DPIIT, Textile Ministry, I&B Ministry and AICTE on January 5 this year to crowd-source innovative toys and games ideas.

Around 1.2 lakh participants from across the country registered and submitted over 17000 ideas for the Toycathon 2021, out of which 1567 ideas have been shortlisted for the three-day online Toycathon Grand Finale, being held from June 22 to June 24.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this Grand Finale will have teams with digital toy ideas, while a separate physical event will be organized for non-digital toy concepts. 

India’s domestic market as well as the global toy market offers a huge opportunity to our manufacturing sector. Toycathon-2021 is aimed at boosting the toy industry in India to help it capture a wider share of the toy market.

Union Minister of Education will also be present on the occasion.
