C-DAC: Genesis and History
Setup in 1988 with the mission to build indigenous
supercomputing capability.
Started building Indian Language Computing technologies
solutions in parallel.
Subsequently added Education & Training activities to its
portfolio.
In 2002, ER&DCI (Electronics Research & Development Centre,
India), NCST (National Centre for Software
Technology) and CEDTI (Centre for Electronics Design and
Technology, India) were merged with C-DAC.
With this, several new domains got added to C-DAC’s spectrum
of activities such as Professional Electronics, Health Informatics,
Cyber Security, Cyber Forensics, e-Governance, etc.

C-DAC
 Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) is the premier R&D
