Abstract

In India, not much funding is allotted for carrying out fundamental research in educational institutions, especially graduate
level institutions. There are very few funding agencies in India such as UGC, DST, DRDO, CSIR, and INSA. AICTE and DBT gave a new impetus to the development of the field of modern biology and biotechnology in India. The Department has promoted and accelerated the pace of development of biotechnology in the country through several R&D projects, demonstrations and creation of infrastructural facilities, a clearly visible impact in this field has-been seen. Despite the knowledge, drive, potential and motivation, the Indian youth miserably fail in research activities, because of inadequate funding. It is very saddening to note that our country is losing young, energetic and research- oriented students, since they migrate to foreign countries where the universities are supported by well equipped research laboratories.
