    Pros

    Lot of intellectual freedom. Great professors and highly talented students. This is the best place to do research in India. Work hours depend on your lab - a few advisors are strict about lab timings, most are not.

    Cons

    Sometimes your choice of research problems can get constrained by lab funding situation. Poor stipend. Masters' students receive Rs. 8000 per month and PhD students get Rs. 18000.
