The University has a structured consultancy policy* and a centralized mechanism to regulate consultancy offers in the capacity of both individual and the organization. A faculty member can spend maximum 40 days in a year for consultancy. All remunerations related to consultancy are received in favour of the Registrar of the University. A faculty/ group receives 75% of total consultancy and 25% of the amount is remitted to University Development Fund. Remuneration paid to an individual faculty in one academic year should not exceed his/her total salary for the year. It is also ensured that the consultancy work at no stage interferes with the normal teaching/research work of any faculty. The administrative charges and charges for the use of equipment/instruments are decided by University as a percentage of the total consultancy amount involved. However, for individual consultancy where lab facility is not needed, no charge is levied.Guidelines followed for consultancy work by the academic staff of the central Universities
