    Preface 1. This booklet will be helpful from high school to post graduate level students to

    carry research and/or pursue career in Science & Technology. 2. This publication will give idea/information/motivation to the parents to ignite

    scientific interest among their children. 3. Students/scholars will be able to easily plan their area for higher studies by using

    this small booklet. 4. People from different science backgrounds will get an idea about interdisciplinary

    research projects in India. 5. This booklet provides some information on research topics taken up in the Indian

    research institutions. 6. Now-a-days, apart fro pure sciences like Biology, Physics, Chemistry and

    Mathematics, advanced/applied science course in Astrophysics, Biophysics, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Biochemistry, Biophysical chemistry, experimental medicine, translational medicine study, and many more interdisciplinary courses that enhance research opportunity amongst students and researchers, are available. Information related to this is available in this booklet.

    7. India is agriculture based country and 67 ICAR institutions act as a repository of information and provides consultancy on agriculture, horticulture, resource management, animal sciences, agricultural engineering, fisheries, agricultural extension, agricultural education, home science and agricultural communication, information on which is provided here.

    8. 40 CSIR laboratories aim to "provide scientific, industrial R&D that maximizes the economic, environmental and societal benefits for the people of India.

    9. 26 ICMR research laboratories have been established in India for the formulation, coordination and promotion of biomedical research, control and management of communicable diseases, fertility control, maternal and child health, control of nutritional disorders, developing alternative strategies for health care delivery, containment within safety limits of environmental and occupational health problems.

    10. 21 institutions have been established under Department of Space for Space sciences and its applications,

    11. 14 institutions under Department of Atomic Energy for India's nuclear energy program is the development and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes such as power generation, applications in agriculture, medicine, industry, research and other areas,

    12. 9 institutions under Ministry of Earth Science provide the best possible services in forecasting the monsoons and other weather/climate parameters, ocean state, earthquakes, tsunamis and other phenomena related to earth systems through well integrated programmes.

    Exploring Science- Explore research opportunities in India Research is a way of learning. Govt. of India offers ample research opportunities to the students with attractive working environment. These research laboratories and universities are supported by Govt. of India through various department i.e. DST, CSIR, ICMR, DBT, ICAR, DAE, etc. Additionally more than 20 Central Universities, 19 NITs, 9 IITs, 6 IIITs, 5 IISER, 6 NIPER, 1IISc, 1 NISER, cover wide range of innovative topics with research projects and offer students the opportunity to earn their PhD, Post-Doctorate degree in structured programmes with interdisciplinary curriculum. They also provide short term courses, Training programmes, National/International conferences, Seminars, Symposia, workshops to upgrade the academics, students as well as professionals. Besides Central universities there is huge number of public and private sector universities present in our country those also provide state of art research facility to the student to pursue their PhD / Post Doctorate programme. To qualify for admission to PhD, you must have completed a masters degree from a recognized university and requisite criteria as per different institution. Each individual Research institution/University selects its own candidate. Govt. of India has no central procedure for admission or for awarding stipends to PhD candidates. CSIR conducts the National Eligibility Test (NET) twice a year; ICMR (NET) is conducted once a year, DBT-NET is conducted once a year to select Research Scholars (JRF) for their research laboratories and also for different universities. Different central universities and institutions have their individual Research eligibility test (URET) to select PhD Scholars. Take advantages of latest discoveries of science Benefit of multidisciplinary training Discover new concept and ways of thinking Work together with highly motivated and talented faculties from different

    backgrounds. Have a access to state of the art research facilities The tradition of Science and Technology (S & T) in India is over 5000 years old. A renaissance was witnessed in the first half of the 20th century. The S&T infrastructure has grown up from about Rs.10 million at the time of independence in 1947 to Rs. 30 billion. Significant achievements have been made in the areas of nuclear and space
