Anantapur: The Oil Technological Research Institute (OTRI) Anantapur, the only oil research institute in South India, is unable to continue successive research activities due to shortage of research assistants. 

The institute was part of the post-World War- II programmes and was sanctioned in Anantapur to conduct research on oils. The institute has a history of getting about 14 patents for successful activities on oil research.

 

At present, the institute is under the aegis of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Anantapur. 

In addition to research activities on oils of groundnut and other edible oils, the institute is also running food technology and pharma courses. While there is almost no taker for food technology course, the institute authorities are inviting applications on condition of sufficient students to start new academic year.

“Otherwise we will be unable to continue courses with less number of students,” an official from JNTU-A said.

Institute director Dr. Chandrasekhar said they sought filling of the vacancies of research assistants and hoped the higher authorities would sanction the required positions of faculty and research assistants.
