The Department of Biotechnology has launched its research resources and facilities supported across the country, through a portal ‘Scientific Infrastructure Access for Harnessing Academia University Research Joint Collaboration, (SAHAJ)’. Each Autonomous Institute and DBT supported Infrastructure programmes will provide and share its equipment and infrastructure to Research Institutes, Universities, Colleges and Start -ups / Entrepreneurs. Their website will carry infrastructure facility usage forms with well defined usage charges, and terms and conditions. Around 15 institutes have been hooked on to this portal for providing a link to their resources and facilities. In order to facilitate students /researchers who do not have any central government funding/ fellowship or research grant, a special Infrastructure Access Grant, capped at Rs 10 lakhs / Year will be provided (on competitive basis ) to the host institute to allow these students/ researchers to access the infrastructure. The Director of the Institute hosting the facility shall be responsible for review of such applications and the decision reached will be conveyed in a time bound manner not exceeding 4 weeks.
