" A large number of road projects in Delhi lack the safety norms," Dr S Velmurugan, head of the traffic engineering and safety division at CRRI
, told Mail Today.
And later CRRI
discovered that milled rice of parboiled grains could be cooked by just soaking in water.
Their demands include increasing the present stipend for the CRRI
from Rs 4,500 to Rs 10.000, for the postgraduates from Rs 8000 to Rs 25,000, for super speciality post-graduates from Rs 9,500 to Rs 28,000 alongside an annual hike of 10 percent.
Until now, these low-yielding grains have not grown outside the north-east, but the scientists at CRRI
have managed to develop a hybrid of a traditional soft rice with a high-yielding variety of regular rice.
According to findings by one of nation's top research agencies, Central Road Research Institute ( CRRI
), Delhi's eight most erratic traffic bottlenecks are guzzling at least 40,000 kilolitres of fuel daily while vehicles wait in peak rush hours.
Recently, the CRRI
had sent a proposal and its observations to the Public Works Department (PWD) regarding the 128 accident- prone spots.
The experts at CRRI
are of the view that the road condition can be made better despite the poor drainage by changing technology and road construction material.
scientists had earlier done noise level checks in 2006 and then again in 2009.
there were about 100 pedestrians counted at HCL Building near Mahamaya Flyover in just two hours,'' says the survey report, completed in nearly four months by the CRRI
It can be reduced to some extent by adopting mitigating measures such as providing noise barriers and proper traffic management," said Nasim Akhtar, Transport Planning Division, CSIR- CRRI
. CSIR, CRRI
and Jamia University conducted two types of noise mapping -- vertical and horizontal.
For the study -- ' Noise Levels in Indian Cities', conducted by the Central Road Research Institute ( CRRI
) in collaboration with the urban development ministry and funded by the UNDP and World Bank -- at least 100 spots in Delhi were surveyed.
" Children and women are prone to this symptom, often caused by unserviced vehicles, including buses, applying sudden brakes at speed breakers," claims a pilot study by the Central Road Research Institute ( CRRI
