    I worked at IISC part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IISc is among the best places to do pursue a high quality research work. The Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) provides state-of-the-art experimental facilities necessary for research related to condensed matter physics, nano-electronics, and nano-sciences.

    Cons

    No accommodation for part time or post doc students. Hostel mess also don't have options to provide food to such students.

    As a part-time student, I could understand the limitation of accommodation. But at all part-time should be able to register at mess so they don't have to travel far while also working on their research project.
