Student Membership: This is a discounted membership fee applicable to students, including Ph.D. scholars. Each student may pay Rs 5,000 (Rupees Five Thousand only) and the student members will be considered as Lifetime members. On par with the regular members, a discount on registration fee will be available to attend all the CRSI symposia even when they become post-doctoral fellow, faculty or staff members at a later stage of their career.
