The project proposals are invited periodically on the issues of national importance within the priority areas. The proposals received otherwise, are also entertained. All the proposals are preliminarily reviewed at PSF. The Foundation utilizes the intellectual expertise of eminent scientists of the country and US Experts to review the research proposals. The proposals recommended by the subject experts are placed before the PSF Technical Committee for examination/evaluation and recommendation. The Technical Committee is the highest forum to recommend or regret any of the proposals. The budgets, up to Rs. 4.00 million, of the proposals recommended by the Technical Committee are approved by the FMC. The projects budgets more than Rs. 4.00 million are approved by the BoG.
