1. Research Policy:
The institute has its own set of policies to promote research. The policies of the research
set by the institute mainly focus on promotion of research in the fundamental and applied
fields of Humanities, Social Sciences, Commerce, Physical Sciences, Biological
Sciences, Computer Sciences, Informatics, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology. The
policy aims at exploitation of human mind power to gain novel knowledge in the above
fields and its use for benefit of the mankind. At the same time promote social wellbeing
and sustainable industrial development. They are framed with an objective to foster
investigations promoting higher level of R & D work, generating innovative and
patentable knowledge giving birth to a researcher of Nobel laureate level.
These policies have been prepared with the objective of setting the direction and
standards of research up to a notable mark besides assurance of quality and ethics in
research progressions. Teaching faculty, researchers and students are encouraged to
explore and refer to the institute’s policies and guidelines concerning significance of
research, collaborative research and interdisciplinary research.
Every now and then generation and expansion of forefront knowledge in various streams
is a suggestion of pursuit for discovery, innovation and invention which has a subtle
impact on Nation’s scientific, technological, socio-economic growth and overall growth
of GDP. Taking the same leaf, our institutes Research Policy is implemented.
Research and its developmental activities produces and propagates new knowledge in
various fields, encourages innovative thinking as well as novel applications and these will
stimulate better learning and teaching among faculties and students of our institute as
these are frequently integrated in the courses.
Our institute endorses quality research publications, promotes build collaborations with
other reputed research institutes.
The institute expects its Teaching Faculty and Researchers to have commitment for sound
Research Output along with other academic responsibilities which is considered as one of
the criteria for faculty recruitment.
Keeping in mind the transitory gap in sanctioning of grants by UGC in recent years for
granted courses and also lack of funds for teachers working under non-grant courses our
parent institute, Shiv Chhatrapati Shikshan Sanstha has come forward with an initiative to
supports the faculty by providing seed money to initiate their Research Projects.
Research Policy is implementable in whole campus of our institute and can serve as
2. Mission of Research
Faculty members and Researchers in Research Departments of our institute are expected
to undertake research, leading to potent quality publications open to scrutiny and debate,
presentations in National/International conferences of repute, invention of Intellectual
property with potential for commercialization, socially useful outcome and
supplementary related research activities. The potential of research output, especially
quality of research publications, may be judged on the established benchmarks such as
Impact Factor (IF), Citation Index, etc and which will be revised from time-to-time as
- To create a pulsating environment of research among faculties, researchers and
students in our institute.
- To create facilitating environment within the institute in order to cultivate a
research culture as well as to provide requisite support by providing research
- Ensure quality publications in renowned journals, indexed in Scopus/Web of
Science and/or with sound impact factor.
- To foster surroundings of undertaking socially useful research with potential for
commercialization that brings significant personal benefits to researchers,
institute as well as to the society.
- Enhance the number of Research Centers within institute with the aim to achieve
excellence in research
- Build up sound interdisciplinary collaborations and partnerships nationally and
- Demonstrate integrity and professionalism, justice and equity, and intellectual
Ensure the safety and well-being of those associated with the research
- To familiarize Faculties and Research Scholars with Code of Ethics set by our

Supervisor/Guide. Research Scholar concerned, keeping in mind the emerging trends and
advancements in the stream of his interest, after thorough reference work in college
