Research Projects



Government Funded Projects


VVVCMB-MRP SCHEME

       The College Managing Board takes research initiatives to nurture the research potential of the faculty. VVVCMB-MRP Scheme launched in 2018 provides financial support as seed money to carry out a Minor Research Project of social significance. This scheme aims at promoting disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in emerging areas that has potential to receive fund from external agencies. It also facilitates the research aspirants to present their research papers in national/international conferences, publish research articles in high-impact journals/books. The Research Academia identifies the outcome-based research that initiates patents and start-ups.

       Every year the call for the project proposal is made twice as Phase I and Phase II in the beginning of November and April respectively. The project proposals submitted by the faculty are approved for the grant after plagiarism check, reviewed by the subject experts, recommendation of the Research Advisory Committee and Research Ethics Committee and approval of the College Managing Board. The Secretary has the power to release the grant towards the selected projects.

       The duration of the project is minimum of one year for the grant released under Category I (seed money less than Rs.50,000/-) and maximum of one and half a year for Category II (Seed money more than Rs.50,000/-). The Order Copy is given to the selected projects of Principal Investigators and Co-Principal Investigators. The PIs of the project have to submit the Mid-term Project Progress Report after 6 months and the Project Completion Report at the end of the project tenure along with the Utilization Certificate and the articles published/paper presented in International Conference. A certificate of completion is issued to the Principal Investigators and the Co-Principal Investigators.

Activities for the year 2023-2024

         The IPR Cell has been functioning from 2021 onwards to create awareness among the students, research scholars and faculty members on Intellectual Property Rights. It also aims to identify the innovators and patentable research works to get a patent.
        In 2023-2024, Dr.R.Salini, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry received an amount of Rs. 2,00,000/- under the Community Innovator Fellowship granted by Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aoyog, New Delhi for her innovative ideas in the production of compostable herbal based-menstrual pads. This work is initiated with purchased equipment under this scheme in scaling-up the production of menstrual pads to meet the challenges in society. Definitely, it would bring another milestone in establishing the start-up VVVC Sakthi and incubation center . Our college provides an additional grant of Rs.1,70,000/- under the VVVCMB-MRP Scheme towards the project titled "A study on Quality attributes of compostable menstrual pad: An alternative source to promote Health and hygiene for Women" for quality check of the product before it reaches the consumer ground.
