REGIONAL RESEARCH AND RESOURCE CENTRE (RRRC)
SIEMAT has come a long way since its inception. It has acquired the distinction of being a centre of
excellence dedicated to the cause of bringing about qualitative
improvement in elementary and secondary education. The elevation of SIEMAT
to a regional status with the formation of Regional Research & Resource Centre

is a compliment for its institutional capacity. The SIEMAT has been entrusted with the
responsibility of imparting training, providing consultancy services, conducting researches
and evaluation studies for Hindi-speaking States, namely, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan,
Uttaranchal, Himachal and Uttar Pradesh, Daman & Div. Besides this, training programmes are also
