Introduction

The Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR) is operating a scheme for granting recognition & registration to in-house R&D units established by corporate industry.

The in-house R&D units applying for recognition to DSIR are expected to be engaged in innovative research & development activities related to the line of business of the firm, such as, development of new technologies, design & engineering, process/product/design improvements, developing new methods of analysis & testing; research for increased efficiency in use of resources, such as, capital equipment, materials & energy; pollution control, effluent treatment & recycling of waste products or any other areas of research. Market research, work & methods study, operations & management research, testing & analysis of routine nature for operation, process control, quality control and maintenance of day to day production, maintenance of plant are not considered as R&D activities.

This is the only scheme in the entire government set-up for benchmarking the industrial R&D. Government of India has announced a number of fiscal incentives for research and development by industry from time to time and many of these incentives are implemented through DSIR. In-house R&D units recognized by DSIR are not only eligible for these incentives (wherever applicable) but also for receiving funds for R&D from other government departments and agencies such as Department of Science and Technology (DST), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF), Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), Technology Development Board (TDB), where recognition to the in-house R&D centre by DSIR is a requirement.
