Main Text: Candidate are strongly advised to discuss with their supervisor the style of writing of the thesis/project report before writing begins. The Stages of investigation and writing are likely to be according to the nature of the subject and should be worked out in consultation with supervisor. However the text should be divided in the chapters and each chapter, headings and subheadings should be numbered like x.y.z.A.B….. where x stands for chapter number y stands for headings and z,A,B.. etc stands for subsequent subheadings. Chapter heading should be edited at center while heading and subheadings should be edited at left. There should be separated uniformity in headings and subheadings. Main chapter heading should be in capital letters. Each paragraph should be started from the next line of heading and subheadings. The general guidelines for chapters are as follows, references should be quoted by authors name or by S.No.

Thesis/project report preparation & binding;


Thesis/reports should normally be bound using temporary binding to facilitate the incorporation of amendments which might be required by the examiners. After examination thesis should be hard bound to resist damage or knocking. Twing-ring, spring-back and spiral binders are not acceptable, as thesis bound in these ways frequently do not survive longer.
