All faculty members are encouraged to take up consultancy with relevant institutions and corporates of high repute.
The consultancy provided may be of two types:

The consultancy services might include - providing subject specific input/ offering technical assistance, data analysis, policy drafting, theoretical framework, advisory in HR/ healthcare/ business/ finance, making of prototype/ model/ product designing, etc.
Appropriate Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) need to be executed between the college and industries/ corporates/ institutions, seeking consultancy services.
The DRD will receive the problem statement(s) from collaborating industries/ corporates/ institutions. The principal consultant will be identified by the Principal, or Dean of Research and Development or by a staff authorized by Dean.
A detailed work plan, including the budget needs to be approved by both the partnering institutions prior to the commencement of consultancy.

The college management provides necessary amenities for the consultancy services.
