Solar Physics and Space Plasma Research Centre
The work of this centre is at the forefront of addressing theoretical
and observational issues in solar physics that include Helioseismology
and Coronal-seismology. This centre is one of the largest and most
dynamic solar physics research groups in the country and is well
