TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR TESTING

  • Samples are received for tests during working hours between 10:00 HRS to 16:00 HRS.
  • Samples are tested and reports issued generally in the order in which they are received.
  • All fees for tests must be paid in advance while submitting the samples. The amount should be paid either in cash or demand draft drawn in favour of ICAR NIRJAFT payable at KOLKATA together with bank collection charges, if any. However, in the case of Govt. Departments and public undertakings samples will be accepted without advance payment but the test report will be issued only after the test fees are received.
  • The balance material after testing will not be returned unless a specific request is made to the effect by the parties at the time of submitting the samples for test. The balance material is expected to be taken back within one month of the issue of the Test Report, beyond which the material will not be preserved.
  • Samples will be received for test only if the minimum size and conditions prescribed for each test are satisfied. However, in special cases, samples found to be below the specified sixe may be accepted for testing, but the test certificates will be endorsed as SAMPLE BELOW REGULATION SIZE. However, there is no change in the test fees for such samples.
  • The Director, ICAR-NIRJAFT may refuse to accept any sample or goods for testing without assigning any reason.
  • The samples for tests must have the necessary identification number/ mark/ label. All relevant details of the samples may be furnished in the forwarding letter.
