Development Stages
Genesis
Dharamveer of village Damla, Distt. Yamuna Nagar, Haryana is basically a farmer and
started earning his living as a rickshaw puller in Delhi. He could not continue this work
for long as there was something else in his destiny. The long hard days could not kill
the farmer and the innovator inside Dharamveer and he returned back to his village to
start growing medicinal plants. This gave him exposure and in 2004 he got a chance to
visit Rajasthan through the Department of Horticulture, Govt. of Haryana with a group
of farmers and learn the processing of Aloe Vera and Amla for producing value added
products for better income generation. He got a direction and decided to produce
value added products instead of only the raw material but the machinery for the
purpose was out of his reach. The think process begun and he decided to develop his
own machine for multiple processing. After an effort of 6-8 months he was able to

develop the first prototype of the Multipurpose processing machine and processed Aloe
Vera for producing juices in 2005. The performance of the machine was acceptable but
he further improved it to make it suitable for extracting essence of various herbs and
processing of other products. His innovation was received in Fifth National Competition
on Grassroots Innovations and Traditional Knowledge organized by NIF in the year
2006. He is using this machine since 2005 and so far has produced 5 improved units of
it based on the suggestions and feedback of the users and concerned experts.

Incubation by GIAN-North
• Innovation was picked up from
Innovation database available at NIF
from among the fifth competition
entries.
• Information available was little hence
the innovator was approached for
detailed information.
• Further discussions took place with
the innovator to understand the
potential and his interest to take this
work forward.
• The innovation was documented and prior art search was conducted.
• The results showed that the innovation was need based and was fulfilling the
requirement of Aloe Vera processing, Essence extraction, and several other
processing in the single unit. No such machine was found available for the
purpose. The products similar to the products developed using this machine
were found available but the processing mechanism and devices were different.
Separate devices were used for developing the same products which were
processed in the same machine by the innovator making it a cost effective
device.
• Another advantage found in this machine was its portability and on farm
processing capability which was not found in any other available alternative.
• The innovation was short listed by GIAN-N for further development and
promotion.
Regional RAC, GIAN-North, Jaipur (December 14, 2007)
• The innovation was presented before the expert panel at GIAN-N office during
the third regional RAC at GIAN-N. The innovator was also made a part of the
RAC to present his case and get direct feedback from the experts about his
work.
• The experts were quite impressed by the work of a grassroots innovator and
appreciated his work. Although the mechanism of the machine was quite simple
and was known but no such system was available as such which could be used for
various processing in a single unit.
• Experts suggested the innovator to use food grade material in the machine so
that the products are more hygienic.
• Experts also suggested him to apply for FPO certification of his products.

The innovator took the advice seriously and planned to use the food grade steel for the
next development. He also applied for the FPO certification with the concerned
authorities.
The details about the innovation alongwith some other innovations was made available to
Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of Rajasthan with a request to select
some potentials technologies which may be promoted through their channel. Further
discussions took place with DST official and this innovation was identified as a potential
one for promotion.
Presentation at TiE meeting at Jaipur – January 18, 2008
During the Confluence of Executive
Directors and Chapter Coordinators of TiE
at Jaipur, GIAN-N was invited for a
presentation on its activities and for
sharing a few examples of grassroots
innovators turned entrepreneurs.
• GIAN-N introduced Sh.
Dharamveer in its presentation and
he shared his experiences with the
participants. The products
developed by the innovator were
also displayed during the meeting.
• The TiE members appreciated the work of a grassroots innovator and gave him
tips of marketing his products by good packaging and demonstrating at various
fairs.
Venture Support by GIAN-N (March, 2008)
GIAN-N after identifying the business potential of the innovation, decided to provide
small financial support to the innovator as the working capital. A business proposal for
the same was developed and funds were mobilized from GIAN-North’s Revolving Fund
