MHRD objects to TIFR funding

 The Ministry of Human Resource Development has rejected the idea of Department of Atomic Energy to invest approximately Rs 1,200 crore for research conducted by TIFR’s Hyderabad centre. The DAE, by virtue of being the parent body of TIFR, had circulated a note last month seeking the Cabinet’s sanction for the same.

 
The HRD ministry has drawn attention to the unethical practces of the off-campus centre in Hyderabad,and said that it would be not right to spend funds on a centre that doesn't even have the approval of the UGC.
