The announcement was made when Naidu was speaking at an event held by the National Children’s Science Congress at Tirupati’s Sri Padmavathi Women’s University.

 



During his speech he also advised the children that they should enjoy the work they do, and never lose their focus from hard work to achieve their goals.

It must be noted that Naidu’s offered prize money is nearly 16 times more than the reward that the awardee gets for winning the Nobel Prize itself, which is Rs 6 crore approximately.

“India has not been able to produce many Nobel Prize-winning scientists despite having abundant talent… There is a lot of potential among the youngsters here and I am sure, if they are encouraged, Nobel laureates would emerge from them…India needs young and innovative scientists, who are brimming with ideas.”
