Guidelines

GUIDELINES  FOR  IMPLEMENTING  COAL  RESEARCH  PROJECTS


GUIDELINES FOR S&T PROGRAMME

The Ministry of Coal & Mines, Government of India, has been supporting R&D programme in coal and lignite sector since 1976. During the last two decades, a number of S&T projects have been completed which have made an impact on the industry. 

The Ministry normally supports projects of shorter duration (2 to 4 years), the findings of which, if completed successfully, can be used directly for commercial exploitation and benefit to the industry. However, in exceptional cases, research in newly emerging and front line areas of Science & Engineering and projects having long terms implications are also supported. 

The guidelines for implementation of the projects have been issued from time to time, since 1976. These guidelines have been recently revised by the Ministry and its Standing Scientific Research Committee to make it comprehensive and need based. 

It is hoped that these guidelines will help the implementing agencies in formulating the research proposals in an organized manner and facilitate evaluation and monitoring of research projects.
