The role and effective functioning of the academies has become important in the context of rapid developments taking place on the cultural and literary fronts. Much can be done by the academies to stimulate original writing and research through subsidies or grants. They could offer greater incentives for the writings and publication of books on social and physical sciences and for other functional literature which could prove helpful to readers in the choice of professions and in earning a livelihood.
