Working in CSIR lab was my dream

1. Facility for research is excellent over there.2. Environment is good. People are helping.3. One can learn new things regularly.4. Peer pressure for work may make you feel sleepless which cause severe damage to your health. One have to understand where to stop, because lab is open 24 hrs.

It's very Good for those who wants to enrol in phD

Everything is ok but student they don't have casual for transportation of cylinders etc. Many student feel like labour. if they recruit atleast one labour/casual for one lab this is beneficial for students.
