An Important notice
As per the guidelines of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), in all publications of research work, where in the analytical services of the SAIF have been made use of, the DST and the SAIF, IIT Madras shall be duly acknowledged. Kindly send us the publication reference (Journal name/volume number/names of the authors/date of issue of the publication etc) to us.
A list of charges for spectral measurements, as stipulated by the Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi, is annexed. A "Three Tier" Charge System is being followed. Please note that :
Please note the current policy on payment of analysis charges: Our current policy requires analysis that payment be received before the samples can be registered and analysis taken up. Please make sure that the payment is received along with the samples. Payments are to be made only by crossed demand draft (DD).
The DD must be drawn in favour of:
The Registrar, IIT Madras
payable at Chennai and must be submitted along with samples and Registration form
Please note that in the event the DD amount/payment received is more than the actual analyses charges incurred, it will NOT be possible to refund the excess amount paid. However, the excess amount may be adjusted against future analyses by the same user or another user from IIT following a written request by Email or hard copy.
