The main objective of this database is to check duplication in research projects both at divisional as well as inter divisional level (in large Institutes), on-line monitoring and concurrent evaluation of the ongoing research projects and for other management requirements. The system is accessible to System Administrators and other class of users like Principal Investigators, Nodal Officers, Head of the Divisions, Directors, ADGs, DDGs and Director General of ICAR. Data Management, Duplication Checking, Monitoring, Reports & Queries and Administration are the five modules in this database. For CIRCOT, Shri M.
