Consulting is envisaged as an activity which entails assistance to an external organisation in finding a solution to specific scientific /technical/managerial problems(s) or performing a task for it in return for pecuniary consideration in whatever form.
A consultancy project, however, is to be distinguished from a research project. The competent authority for approving the consultancy shall have the powers to decide whether a particular assignment is a consultancy or contract research.
Any technical work requiring research and development activity to be undertaken in the Institute and which would require substantial use of institutional infrastructure and the time of the staff shall be taken up as contract research rather than consultancy.
