Project Guidelines

These projects are headed by a Principal Investigator (PI), and should have Co-Principal Investigators (co-PIs)/administrative PI (to operate the project, in case PI is out of station) and the deliverables are the responsibility of the PIs. The Institute provides the PIs necessary support.
  • For each sponsored project, the entire expenditure for the operation of the project is required to be met out of funds provided by the sponsoring agency.
    The responsibility for operation of the project lies with the PI.
  • Preparation and Submission of the Proposal: The project proposal should be formulated according to the format prescribed by the concerned funding Agency. The format is available at the respective website of each Funding Agency.
