In a bid to get rid of random disbursement,the government is planning a selective approach in allocating research support for academic institutions. This will also ensure that resources for research are used to the best advantage.

This has been one of the mandates given to the special committee set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to improve research performance of academic institutions.

The 18-member committee,headed by chairman of Centre’s Department of Biotechnology,has former heads of UGC,AICTE,and NCL. The heads of NAAC,NBA,IISc Bangalore and JNU are among other educational establishments.

“As India moves in the global knowledge economy,building awareness about critical global rankings,research evaluation and targeted and competitive research funding would be central to the country’s strategy to improve its research capacity and performance. The government has decided to constitute a committee to drive up the research performance of academic Institutions,” a MHRD notification reads.
