The state of the art analytical instrument facilities available in the Central Salt & Marine Chemicals Research Institute (CSMCRI), Bhavnagar is part of the unique infrastructure created over years to render analytical services and intellectual input including analytical method development to a wide range of users within the institute and also to the Universities, institutions and industries on payment basis.
We offers analytical instruments facilities and analysis for Water, Sea Water, Brine, Bittern, Salt, Mixed Salt, Clay, Minerals, Siliceous Chemicals, Seaweed, Seaweed Chemicals etc to clients.
The analysis charge is worked out based on the CSIR Guidelines for technology transfer and utilization of knowledgebase considering various costs like instrument cost, raw material cost, man power cost, overhead expenditure etc. The details of instruments, analysis and charges for the same are given below.
We offer discount to clients as detailed below except Single Crystal X-Ray Diffractometer analysis:
|Sr. No.||Type of Client||Discount Offered||Requirement to avail discount|
|1||Industry (large and medium scale)||Nil||Not Applicable|
|2||Industry (small scale)||40%||Copy of registration as small scale unit|
|3||National & State Govt. R&D Laboratories||60%||Samples should be submitted through proper channel ie. through Head of the Institute / Head of the Department / PhD guide on official letter head in the format given at Annexure - II.|
|4||Students of Universities, Educational Institutes||75%|
All services, offered on/after November 15, 2015 would attract an additional 0.5% towards Swachh Bharat Cess (SBC). Further, w.e.f. June 1, 2016 an additional charge of 0.5% is to be paid as Krishi Kalyan Cess (KKC). These cess charges would be over and above the 14% Service Tax.
