The college encourages the faculty members to get involved in Research and Development activities by providing initial funding for research projects under In-House Project Scheme. The interested faculty members of GPREC can avail this initial funding facility. By availing this scheme, the faculty members publish good number of research papers in peer reviewed National and International Journals and Conference Proceedings. Also, faculty members are encouraged to attend trainings, FDPs in thrust areas to be abreast with the latest developments.


  • In-house project scheme is initiated by inviting proposals from the faculty of all departments. In this regard, a circular from the Principal is issued every on-behalf of R&D cell of the college.
  • Faculty members can apply individually or as a team, with a maximum of three members including the Principal Investigator.
  • R&D cell provides in-house project proposal format on the website of the college.
  • All the proposals received are scrutinized by Research Review Committee constituted by the R&D Cell and Principal of the college.
  • Based on the merits of the proposals, the committee recommends for provisional acceptance of the proposals.
  • The Principal and R&D Cell committee members will select the final in-house project proposals based on the recommendations of the Research Review Committee.
  • Maximum duration of the In-House Project is for TWO years from the sanctioned date of project.
  • At least one full length publication in SCI/SCIE/Scopus/ESCI indexed Journal, related to the sanctioned in-house project is mandatory. The team members can also opt for patent(s) filing depending on the feasibility and applicability of the work, if they wish in place of journal publication(s).
  • R & D Cell monitors the progress of in-house projects through periodic reviews.
  • After completion of the project, the R&D Cell provides necessary help and motivates the faculty to submit research proposals to the major funding agencies, like, AICTE, DST, UGC and other funding agencies for further analysis and deeper/advanced research extension activities.
