CENTRAL SOIL AND MATERIALS RESEARCH STATION
Ministry of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation, Govt. of India
The Central Soil and Materials Research Station (CSMRS), an attached office of the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation is located at New Delhi and provides consultancy services involving field and laboratory investigations, and undertakes research in the areas of foundation engineering, comprising soil and rock both, and construction materials including soil, rockfill, geosynthetics and concrete (and its constituents viz. aggregate, cement, pozzolana, admixtures, ash, water). CSMRS is one of the central government organizations involved in the review process of the ‘Detailed Project Reports’ of major hydropower/ water resources projects, and primarily works for major river valley projects in India and neighbouring countries. However, its clients’ list has a fair sprinkling of organizations from diverse sectors including nuclear power, thermal power, roads and bridges, railways, mining and building. Being in the government sector, the first priority is accorded to the works of the organisations of Central and State Governments, and Public Sector Undertakings along with those of neighbouring countries. However, several consultancy works of Private Sector have also been undertaken.
I hope that this website will provide fair introduction to CSMRS and keep you updated about its activities. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to know more about CSMRS.
