In the material world of science, information plays the crucial role for the existence of common human being without which man may not exist as it is exactly and increasingly being recognized as a vital source. Information is an indispensable raw material for right decision making from individual to individual and from individual to general. It is, in fact, a vital ingredient for the social development of any nation, especially for the developing countries like India. It is a well accepted generalization that a county which is rich in information is rich in socio-economic spheres. The backwardness of any country in respect of socio-economic spheres is mainly due to lack of information transferred adequately to international co-operation, co-ordination and understanding, especially in the field of science and technology.
