  1. 1. INDUSTRIAL TOXICOLOGY RESEARCH CENTRE (ITRC) Presenters Name: Mr. Abhishek Burad Mr. Chirag Kothari Mr. Omkar Patil
  2. 2. About ITRC • ITRC was established in India in 1965 by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Government of India. • Headquartered at Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India • Aim and basic objective was – “Identification of the harmful effects of chemical pollutants and devise appropriate curative measure to prevent damages to environment and general public”. • Master is research in 28 specialized area section that were grouped under 5 broad areas: – Environmental Toxicology – Systemic Toxicology – Preventive Toxicology – Eco-Toxicology – Pesticide Toxicology
  4. 4. Stringent government policies and control was the biggest threat towards the sustainability of ITRC:  Causes of Threats:  Reduction of financial support from central government leading to budgetary squeeze.  Issue a directive in 1992 to freeze new recruitments  Lot of CSIR interference (Unavoidable) created an obstacle for ITRC towards meeting its objective. All the above factors are considered as threat for ITRC due to which expansion activity had virtually come to standstill. The successful resolution of this conflict could be a critical determinant of its future performance. Threats
  5. 5. ITRC has laid the solid foundation in the areas of toxicology research in India. ITRC had the opportunity to leverage its excellency in new vistas of industrial hazardous research  Bio-technology  Preventive Technology  Immunobiology  Photobiology  Cosmetic Toxicology Private sector has emerged as a new market which brings new opportunities specially in recycling of industrial waste and effluents. Opportunity
  6. 6.  Lack of self-sufficiency in financing future development activities  Non Profit projects have made the company sluggish to adapt itself in changing environment.  Weak organization structure has affected the company’s performance and sidelined it from routine research activities.  Lack of expertise within the organization to take on the demand shift from basic research to applied research. Weakness
  7. 7.  Changing the existing mindset of the scientist had become the challenging task  Due to generation gap – the problem of internal and external cultural factors exist.  Main focus had change from quality of research to revenue generation. Weakness
  8. 8.  Pioneer Toxicological Research Institute in India.  ITRC had developed expertise in almost all the areas of toxicology and become the leading research institution.  The scientists of ITRC were highly qualified and possessed a diverse and rich experience.  ITRC is equipped with latest equipment from all the over the world to develop Toxicity Data Units (TDU).  Had fully fledged library containing some 25000 bound volumes, books and monographs. Strength

  10. 10. Questions A. Is ITRC geared to meet the expanding demands of changing environment?  Since its inception ITRC grew in all the areas of research in modern toxicology.  It contributed significantly in keeping the nation safe from chemical hazardous used in the industries.  Demand for such research had grown tremendously and ITRC was the best choice among industries to provide such services.
  11. 11. Questions A. Is ITRC geared to meet the expanding demands of changing environment?  With growing demand and changing business environment with no financial assistance on government behalf, ITRC find it tough to work under such un-lucrative environment.  If such scenario persists for longer time, ITRC will no longer be in a position to meet the growing demand and hence could losses its competitive advantage.
  12. 12. Questions How can ITRC cope with the situation?  With the current threat of reduced financial support from the union government, ITRC has to come up with different plan strategy to generate revenue to funds its expansion activities.  ITRC has to indulge itself in doing “Need Gap Theory” analysis.  A gap is been formed between desired performance and current deployed strategy; Reason being 1. Insufficient financial reserve 2. Poor government policy B.
  13. 13. Questions How can ITRC cope with the situation?  To bridge the gap ITRC needs to adopt market oriented approach.  Commercialized its activities and formed a “Knowledge Based Marketing Group”  Focus more on private sector and leverage its expertise in new vistas of research. B.
