The Indian Innompic Games icon Jugaad is a respected methodology of optimizing the resources. It is a survival tactic that expresses a need to do what needs to be done, without regard to what is conventionally supposed to be possible. This meaning is often used to signify creativity to utilize the limited resources to the maximum extent.

Jugaad is used for solutions that bend rules, or a resource that can be used as such, or a person who can solve a complicated issue. It is used as much to describe enterprising street mechanics as for political fixers. Farmers, traders, and housewives also use their jugaad to achieve more with the limited resources available to them.
