               8. Consultancy Activities

               As  a  part  of  DU’s  efforts  to  facilitate  activities  to  smoothen  the  progress  of  knowledge  and
               technology transfer between University and the local community, contributing to economic and
               social impact of the society, the faculty members were encouraged to take part in consultancy
               activities. Such activities will also act as an extra source of additional income to the University
               and/or financial benefit  to the faculty. Table 10 enlists the consultancy activities carried out
               during  current  academic  year  while  Table  11  shows  the  list  of  professional  development
               workshops or lectures delivered to local schools, Colleges and industry during AY 2016-17.
