Today the Public Sector Organization (funded by the Government of India) in the country plays a significant role in the economic as well as social development of the country. They deal with taxpayers’ money and are therefore should be accountable. IASST being an autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, the same responsibility is bestowed upon the institution.
