TALAASH RESEARCH CONSULTANTS: FOCUSES TOWARDS CREATING AWARENESS ABOUT HIGH-QUALITY RESEARCH IN INDIA
Going into depths of Research work is not an easy task in India. There is a huge gap in terms of the quality of the research in the country when it comes to academic research at the doctoral level in comparison to the western countries. Considering this, the University Grants Commission has recently taken steps to enhance the quality of the research work and re-evaluate the quality of the research work done by the academicians in the last 10 years. In India, there isn’t any specific organization that exclusively focuses on creating awareness of high-quality research among academic researchers. Talaash Research Consultants aims towards fulfilling this gap by acting as a mentor to researchers across the nation to help them carry out research with high quality and in an ethical way. It extends its services to researchers outside India as well. It offers several workshops and training programs across several colleges and universities. It also offers online courses to both Indian and foreign students. The mission of the organization is to offer high-quality research consultation services at an affordable cost.
Talaash Research Consultants is the first company in India to function fully under the concept of VIRTUAL OFFICE. Further, it is wholly owned and run by women. It is the only organization that runs a free social media page under the name of ResearchMethodologyTutor for teaching the basic concepts of research methods at free of cost to the researchers. The page has nearly 12000+ followers across the globe.

On ensuring the trust of the clients on the Company, Dr.Rajalakshmi Subramaniam states, “I promise only what I can offer. I do not over commit to my clients, and if some requirement is out of my scope, I honestly will turn down the order. Unlike other companies, where the top management level people do not have direct interaction with the clients, I ensure to personally speak with each and every client of mine and address their issues then and there. This has helped our company in maintaining a 5-star rating on its social media page by all its clients.”
BUSINESS ETHICS FOLLOWED BY A CONSULTANT
An efficient consultant is someone who just does not give a solution to the problem that a client encounters but also identifies the root cause of the problem and helps the client in eradicating the same. The CEO states, “I do not consider the monetary benefit as the first priority when it comes to offering consultation services. I ensure to give unlimited support to the clients in their work till they achieve the highest level of satisfaction. Our company does more than what it commits. It, in fact, follows a 100% money refund policy in case we fail to deliver what we had promised to the clients.”
The two major CSR objectives of their company are Women Empowerment and Enhancement of the Quality of Higher Education
Indian women, despite being highly educated and qualified, are prone to witness career breaks, especially after marriage. Having experienced the vacuum that career break would bring to women personally, the entrepreneur wanted to make her business model contributing towards women empowerment. As a result, the entrepreneur made her company 100 percent of women managed the organization. Additionally, she also offered her colleagues the facility of working from home. The aim of Talaash Research Consultants is to facilitate women towards continuing their career irrespective of their family situation. The company operates under the concept of VIRTUAL OFFICE, wherein its staff can work from wherever they are, irrespective of their geographic location, thereby helping women realizing their dream of achieving greater heights in their career.
Likewise, in order to fulfill the second objective, Enhancement of the Quality of Higher Education, they conduct training and workshops for the people belonging to rural India and educate them regarding high-quality research. They also offer concessions in consultation fees for people from remote villages.
