             Though the utmost priority is to reposition and upgrade the Testing Station to the changing needs and standards of the testing requirements of not only Rubber but, also to diversify the performance of the Testing Station to a wide and larger area  of products outside the purview of Rubber, innumerable proposals are being thought of and necessary Consultancy advices of KITCO a public sector Agency of Government of Kerala has been sought and the final proposal is in the pipeline to be submitted to the Head Quarters of The Development Commissioner, MSME, New Delhi for final approval. The Testing Station will presently cater to the needs of the testing requirements above and will widen it’s horizon in the future.
