Introduction

University Ranking Agencies, harvest data through research engines from the websites of the institutes and categorize them according to their parameters including maximum number of publications in the credit of the institute. Keeping in view the worth of printed information even in the modern digital era, ORIC strives hard to maximize the number of scientific publications in the quality journals. For the encouragement of having enhanced publication in his/her credit, financial assistance in terms of “Reimbursement of Printing Charges” is also provided so that burden on the researchers may be lessened.
