New Delhi, 01 April 2016 :  The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India is conducting a national survey about resource facilities available for research and development in institutions across the country, including universities and colleges affiliated to them. The information collected and compiled on resources devoted to Research and Development (R&D) activities in the country will be used when bringing out a number of analytical reports, useful as an evidence base for policy formulation and planning of the Indian S&T sector, an official release by the University Grants Commission (UGC) said. Such national surveys have been conducted on a regular basis earlier. The national S&T survey 2015-16 aims at capturing the current R&D landscape by collecting information from around 5000 R&D organizations viz., public sector, private sector, MNCs, higher education, SIROs and NGOs spread across the country. A structured questionnaire based on international standardization of S&T resources has been designed seeking information on various aspects such as General Information, Expenditure on S&T (R&D) activities, R&D Manpower and R&D Output.

In the digital era, the present national survey is being conducted on a web based platform to minimize the time lag and to ensure smooth accomplishment of such a mammoth task. In order to ensure the authenticity of information, each respondent organisation has been assigned a unique Username and Password.

DST is now collecting information for the year 2015-16 through an online survey available on:  http://nationalsandtsurvey.nstmis-dst.org/ Universities and colleges are asked to submit the requisite information within a month. The latest research and development statistics report brought out in the year 2013 is available on the website: www.nstmis-dst.org.
