  1. It is regret to mention that Biotechnology UG candidates (freshers) are getting less chance for campus selection due to limited participation of Industries either Pvt or Govt. Govt. should insist to the biotechnology industrialists to give opportunity to biotechnology UG freshers also during on campus selection, as there are so many ways for developments from bioscience group. So that freshers with UG can show there talent and learn more which may help them for better future also.
