SPONSORED RESEARCH PROJECTS

The faculty is actively busy in many sponsored research projects from UGC, DST, CSIR, MOEF, UPCST and industry etc. Presently 12 full time research scholars are pursuing for their Ph.D. degrees. The well equipped laboratories are providing very useful service to the Industry and many Governmental Organizations. 10 PhD have already been awarded through this Institute and many more are in advanced stage of submission. The department has been identified under Special Assistance Program of UGC for a project on waste Paper Processing. The work is likely to start soon on the same.

CONSULTANCY AND TESTING

Faculty of DPT is actively busy in consultancy and testing work, and it has risen over the last few years. Many Govt. and Semi-Govt. organizations like State Bank of India, Reserve Bank of India, Survey of India, Director General Quality Assurance, State Transport Corporations, State Text Book Publication Boards, NCERT, IGNOU etc are regular clients. Even paper samples for testing are received from Nepal on sustained basis.

Prof. N. J. Rao is always in demand by may National and International agencies. Prof. M. C. Bansal and Prof. A. K. Ray are also always busy with many different types of assignments from different agencies. Facilities are developed and maintained even with limited resources to serve the industry and other agencies alike.
