In the past traditional scholars of great merit were given junior/senior research scholarships by the Govt. of India through the Central Sanskrit Board/Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan. Scholars under this scheme produced valuable texts, Sastra texts/topics, Literature, Agama texts, Dramaturgical texts etc.
Diverse categories of research - traditional, modern, inter-disciplinary etc. by Indian and foreign scholars, were officially started from 1983 within the campus as regular academic work. Besides there was an all round improvement in other academic activities. Special mention has to be made about the efforts taken by the Institute in the field of Saiva and Vaishnava Agamic Studies. No other institution in South India except the concerned departments in the University of Madras has taken up these studies.
Scholars have obtained Vidyavaridhi (equivalent to Ph.D.), affiliated to the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, New Delhi.
Scholars were awarded Shastrachudamani for undertaking research in various topics.
