|Abstract||Electroforming technique has been employed to produce components, structures and articles that would be difficult or impossible to produce by other methods of fabrication with a high degree of surface finish and dimensional accuracy. Electroforming diffes from electroplating in that the electrodeposit is not a surface coating but actually forms the component. Electroforming is an expanding technology and hence used for a variety of applications. This paper reviews the status of electroforming technology particularly during the last decade preceding the last millennium. Recent developments in the applications of electroforming are discussed which includes moulds, electronic components, jewellery, aerospace applications and other industrial applications. Developments with respect to the alloy electroforming process, anode, electrolyte, pulse electroforming and new processes are also highlighted|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
