Bengaluru: Union Minister for Railways, Communications, Electronics, and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw on Friday inaugurated India’s first 3D-printed post office in Bengaluru.
The office building, located in Begaluru’s Cambridge Layout in Halasuru locality, was built using Three Dimensional (3D) Concrete Printing Technology by Larsen and Toubro Construction in 45 days.
The structural design of the 1000 square-feet area post office was approved by IIT Madras.
The Union Minister in his inaugural speech said that the opening of the 3D-printed post office indicated the spirit with which the country is progressing in the present day.
"No one ever thought that India would be developing its own 4G and 5G technology. Nobody ever thought that India would produce its own very complex telecom equipment. Actually, one of the industry veterans mentioned that he was with the telecom industry for 35 years and never could have imagined that India could emerge as a manufacturer and developer of telecom technology,” Vaishnaw stated.
"Nobody ever thought that India would be able to design and manufacture a world-class train on the way to making its own bullet train. Example after example, sector after sector, nobody could ever think that India would be exporting Howitzer guns," he stated.
The Union Minister while showering praises on Bengaluru city, said that he enjoys coming here as the city has so much energy, positivity, and forward-looking character. The city represents a new picture of India.
