ANUSANDHAN NATIONAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION (NRF) BILL,2023
Parliament of India passed the Anusandhan National Research Foundation (NRF) Bill 2023. The foundation, first proposed in the National Education Policy 2020 was envisioned as an autonomous body coordinating research funding in the country, especially for the research funding-starved universities and colleges. The NRF Bill will revoke the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) established by an act of Parliament in 2008. The bill will repeal SERB and subsume it into NRF.
