The Research and Development wing of
Labour India Educational Research Centre is engaged in the formation
of excellent educational methodologies for the good of the world. We
believe that education should mould the students into worthy citizens.
For this purpose, it should not be a mere remembering process. It
should bring up the latent talents in every student. Keeping this
lofty goal in mind the Research & Development division prepares
innovative educational journals and other media for the students
through incessant research .
Around 300 personnel comprising of
educational experts, experienced teachers, child psychologists,
children’s writers and so on work together under one roof in the
state-of-the-art R&D centre here. Prof. S. Sivadas, the well-known and
celebrated writer of children’s literature is adorning the chair of
