According to the UGC, it is a unique digital gateway designed to enhance access to science and scientific research as well as make it easier to set up businesses.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has mandated that Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) and their affiliated colleges/institutes register on the Biological Research Regulatory Approval Portal (BiorRAP), biorrap.gov.in. government of India Established the Biological Research Regulatory Approval Portal (BioRRAP) to provide regulatory information to researchers and expedite approvals.
According to the UGC, it is a unique digital gateway designed to enhance access to science and scientific research as well as make it easier to set up businesses. BioRRAP is expected to contain information on foreign research projects that have been approved by all relevant Ministries/Departments of the Government of India (with a unique BioRRAP ID for each proposal).
It added that relevant approvals for research projects by institutions belonging to the category of Central and State Government will be handled by the competent ministry. The UGC further suggested that all such recommendations should be sent to the concerned Ministry of the Government of India.

I had to check all the projects. , as well as monitoring the implementation and progress of bilateral treaties from time to time, expanding ongoing research projects, and supporting the transmission of human biological materials.
The BioRRAP portal will improve cross-departmental collaboration and promote the efficiency with which organizations overseeing various aspects of biological research operate. This will simplify the regulatory process and confirm the ease of conducting biological science research.
