The Office of Research Support (ORS) provides administrative support for research and knowledge transfer (KT) activities of the University and secretarial service for the university-wide Research Committee. It assists in the review and implementation of research and KT policies, and for a wide range of internal and external grants and funding schemes for research and KT, it offers the necessary support in their promotion, application process, budget preparation, administrative arrangements, information management and monitoring of project progress and use of fund. Annual reports are prepared by ORS for the University on research and KT achievements and statistical data for submission to the University Grants Committee (UGC) and Research Grants Council (RGC).


External grants served by ORS include various funding schemes provided by the UGC/RGC and other sources. Internal grants as supported by the Research Committee are the Direct Grant, Research Seed Fund, Faculty Research Grant, Conference Grant, Research Collaboration and Development Fund, Fund for Organising Conference, Research Visit Fund and the Research and KT Excellence Awards. For KT and Faculty Entrepreneurship under the University's Innovation and Impact Fund (IIF), ORS promotes and administers the fund, and provides professional support in patent filing and licensing for the faculty. ORS also assists the Research Committee in overseeing the University’s Research Institutes/Centres/Programmes within the Committee’s purview.
