CMERI Centre of Excellance for Farm Machinery

The Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI) is the apex R&D institute for mechanical engineering under the aegis of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). Being the only national level research institute in this field, CMERI's mandate is to serve industry and develop mechanical engineering technology so that India's dependence on foreign collaboration is substantially reduced in strategic and economy sectors. Besides, the institute is facilitating innovations and inventions for establishing the claims of Indian talent in international fields where Indian products shall ultimately compete. In the new millennium, CMERI is poised to expand its horizon of research activities so as to steer the country forward in cutting-edge and sunrise fields.

In view of the large size of the country and innumerable industrial establishments needing such solutions, the task was considered beyond the capacity of single research unit. This led to the conception of the Centre of Excellance for Farm Machinery​ (CoEFM), erstwhile name MERADO, as a rigional center concentrating on problems related to the development needs of the small and medium scale industries.
