The CPRI or the CENTRAL POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTE is a key organization in the city and possibly has other branches across the country. I have visited this institute many times. Mylavarapu Ramamamurthy who has written a book on Power Electronics was director of this institute in the 1980s. In 1997 I remember visiting Mr. Biswas who was a key official inside the premises of CPRI and have also attended seminars inside the CPRI  auditorium.

This institute proves beyond doubt our Government is second to none in creating and nurturing institutes like CPRI  in niche sectors which serve as a back bone to power transmission thinking and dynamics.

Anyone keen on visiting this institute or in a quandary about its location the institute is adjacent to the Indian Institute of Science also called the Tata Institute and a key bus stop along the way is Mekhri Circle and the IAF training command and even Sankey tank is close by.
