CSIR : The Council of Scientific & Industrial Research

The Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) India, an autonomous body registered under the Registration of Societies Act of 1860, was constituted in 1942. The fundamental aim of CSIR is to provide industrial competitiveness, social welfare, strong S&T base for strategic sectors and advancement of fundamental knowledge.

Creating an enabling infrastructure and
Investing in high quality science that will be the harbinger of future technologies.
