The role of the Advisory Committees is exceedingly important in the peer review process. The advisory committees evaluate individual R&D proposals received from the project investigators and make appropriate recommendation for funding or otherwise. Identification of priority areas of R&D requiring attention and preparation of state-of-the-art reports and other such reports which will give a review of the status of R&D and technology development in the specific area are done through the advisory committees.

Each Scheme / Program is guided by an Advisory Committee. These committees comprise of eminent scientists and technologists in various fields of science and engineering.

The compositions of the committees in the areas of Chemical Sciences, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences and Himalayan Glaciology, Engineering Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Scheme for Young Scientists given under.
