Two Grants of 3.5 crore rupees each are offered to Shah-Schulman Centre for Surface Science and Nanotechnology at DDU, Nadiad, Gujarat
I am pleased to report that after several presentations at Gandhinagar, the Government of Gujarat has approved a grant of Rupees 3.5 crores to purchase the modern instruments for surface science and nanotechnology at Dharmsinh Desai University(DDU). A similar grant was approved by DDU for Faculty, staff and technicians and laboratories. I feel very happy that God has given me this good news in my ‘retirement’ years. I am looking forward to train a few students and younger colleagues here at DDU.
