During the discussion, Kundan, a student of PhD College of Technology, Coimbatore, told the PM that he has created a chatbait, through which the person can tell the problem or complain to the police without getting scared. At this, the PM asked in a funny tone, “Have you ever had to go to the police station?” On his question, Kundan said that he had to go to the police station once he had eaten. The PM then also gave a suggestion to Kundan that it should have voice input facility and make it available in the Indian language as well.

Shweta, a student of Coimbatore, has created a health card with the help of the Ministry of Water Power so that the water can be sent to the villagers if the embankment water enters the coastal villages. This can save people’s lives. Riche Mathew, a student from Ernakulam, has made a sanitary napkin of cloth that can be used.
Talking about the new education policy, PM Maedi in Hackathon said that many children read the subjects selected by others under pressure. That is why the large population of the country feels incomplete even after the number of degrees. The new education policy will make the country self-sufficient in future. It insists on making a ‘job-giver’ rather than a ‘job-seeker’.
