TePP has no provision to support research work. The primary support is for entrepreneurs taking their innovation to market. Researchers working in universities, IITs etc get research grants from UGC,AICTE,DST,DBT,CSIR,DIT,DRDO etc. Who supports researchers not working in any research institute? Probably none. TePP recieves requests from many such unattached researchers and they are generally advised to publish their research work in peer reviewed journals as there is a possibility institute researchers may show interest in tie-upwith them .
One such researcher is Muraleekrishnan from kerala, not supported under TePP or any other govt program- working on a novel cryptography tool . His paper has now appeared in 'AmericanInstitute of Physics' and NASA digital library.
