CSIR-CMERI Centre of Excellence for Farm Machinery

Although the establishment of CMERI at Durgapur by the Government of India as one of the National laboratories under CSIR created the essential condition for indigenous R&D in diverse fields of Mechanical Engineering in the country, it was soon realized that thousands of industrial units spread throughout the sub-continent needed almost immediate solutions to their day-to-day problems. In view of the large size of the country and innumerable industrial establishments needing such solutions, the task was considered beyond the capacity of single reseach unit. This led to the conception of the Center of Excellence for Farm Machinery erstwhile MERADO as an extension center of CMERI focusing on problems related to the developmental needs of the small and medium scale industries, specifically for all the Northern States of India.
