Research and Documentation

Research is a scientific and systematic search for gathering information on a particular topic. As the nomenclature suggests, it is a re-search. Dictionary defines research as a careful investigation or inquiry specially through search for new facts in any branches of knowledge. MARC organizes independent research on various issues and themes. The research unit maintains a resource center. Major initiatives of our research unit are:
