NEW DELHI: The government is mulling over introducing a grading system for scientists and redesigning the performance mapping of scientists (PMS), the Rajya Sabha was informed on Thursday.

In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha on whether the government proposed to come up with a grading system for scientists in the CSIR, a premier research body, Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan responded in the affirmative, adding that the CSIR hadn’t thus far received any “negative input” on the exercise.

“The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research has implemented PMS from 2012. The CSIR has constituted a high-power committee under the chairmanship of P S Ahuja, former director-general of the CSIR, on revisiting the CSIR Scientists Recruitment and Assessment Promotion Rules,” he said.

Vardhan said the proposed redesign of PMS included technology development, knowledge generation, human resource development, intellectual property, economic product, research and development, planning and business development, among several other parameters of evaluation.

“These are formulated to actively promote R&D as well as those support activities that will aid the mandate of CSIR of providing technological solutions to industry and society,” he said.
