RESEARCH STUDIES 
 
Since inception, a large number of research studies have been completed at CRRID, which reflect the academic concerns of the Centre. The studies are largely inter-disciplinary, reflect the expertise of the faculty and interests of the funding agencies, besides being rooted in the needs of the region where the Centre is located. The Research Advisory Council (RAC) regularly reviews the research priorities of the Center and suggests the needed modification, if any. As part of its new policy of broad-basing social science research, the center is actively taking up need based interventional or action oriented research studies for greater and direct benefit of public, governments and funding agencies. While Central and State Governments, National and local Autonomous agencies and Public Sector institutions have sponsored most of these studies; the Centre itself has also initiated some. In recent past, the Centre has also welcomed international organizations to fund research at CRRID. The details of research projects completed at CRRID along with the respective disciplinary areas, sponsors and year of completion are indicated below:
