Research and Development Policy

The committee with the help of senior faculties help to structure the proposal in the proper shape. Thereafter, once the proposal is accepted by the university, the teachers start working and quarterly they are supposed to present what they have advanced in the presence of the other faculty members. During this time, they (the teachers undergoing project work) receive the feedback from the teachers present and accordingly get scope to develop the same in the proper manner. At the end once the work is over, the final draft is again to be presented and discussion on the same is conducted. After the presentation and modification, if necessary, the teacher is allowed to submit the report for 2 external examiners. On the receipt of the report, from two external examiners, the final viva is conducted and the candidate’s work is concluded.
