National Institute of Food Technology, Entrepreneurship and Management Thanjavur

National Institute of Food Technology, Entrepreneurship and Management Thanjavur (NIFTEM-T) is a distinguished research and educational institution operating under the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Government of India. It was established by Dr. V. Subrahmanyan, a renowned scientist and the founder Director of the Central Food Technological Research Institute, Mysore. After his retirement, he initiated the Paddy Processing Research Centre (PPRC) in 1967 as a research and development laboratory within the premises of the Modern Rice Mill complex of the Thanjavur Co-operative Marketing Federation (TCMF) in Tiruvarur, Tamil Nadu. The initial focus of the institute was to address the challenge of preserving high moisture paddy, which posed difficulties during the monsoon season in Southern India.

In 1972, the Paddy Processing Research Centre (PPRC) was elevated to the status of a national laboratory. Along with the up-gradation, the institute’s objectives were expanded, and its scientists began conducting research on technologies for post-harvest processing and preservation of paddy. In 1984, the institute was relocated to its present campus in Thanjavur, where it continues to advance its research and educational endeavors in the field of food technology.

NIFTEM-T plays a pivotal role in promoting food processing industries and entrepreneurship in the country. The institute’s rich history, starting from its humble beginnings as a research laboratory, showcases its evolution into a nationally recognized institution dedicated to finding innovative solutions for food processing challenges. With its commitment to research excellence and contributions to the food sector, NIFTEM-T continues to make significant strides in enhancing food technology and entrepreneurship in India.

Counselling Process

The counselling process for Engineering Colleges in India is conducted by two major authorities: the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) and the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB). These processes are aimed at providing a fair and transparent system for candidates seeking admission to undergraduate engineering programs in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), and other Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs).

Candidates admitted to Josaa Counselling for engineering colleges across India have the option to register for CSAB counselling in case of remaining vacant seats, ensuring additional opportunities for securing admission to esteemed engineering institutions.
