As part of this, the institute accepts Ph.D. scholars to carry out research under the able guidance of our faculty. We currently have over a dozen research scholars who are registered for their PhDs.  Other students have initiated their work and look forward to being formally registered soon. In parallel with the increasing number of core faculty, the number of research scholars will also increase in the next few years
