Despite widespread practices, high productivity of R&D centers has been lacking in higher education institutions. Present article reports that R&D centers are bit active in providing human resource management, skilled manpower and research experts to society and research institutions accordingly. But, these are not playing an effective role in making need-based assessments of research projects, providing trained manpower to local industry, preparing expert artisans for strengthening labor market, developing bridge between research institutions and community, and facilitating public sector institutions through research activities. The province-wise and discipline-wise comparison of R&D centers points out that their progress varies from province to province as well as from discipline to discipline. The study identifies major causes of low productivity and suggests solutions.
