The aim of this study is to know the perception of researchers of Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (KVASU) during lockdown period. The entire postgraduates and doctoral students doing research in KVASU were taken for the study. Among them 88.39 per cent of researchers had responded for this survey. The results from the study found that majority of the researchers are in the mid stage of their research and most of them perceived that COVID-19 has affected their research work. With respect to perception statements majority of researchers perceived that lockdown has created many barriers for researcher to proceed with their research work and 82.83 per cent of researchers perceived that thesis making guidelines should be made more lenient by the university. Further majority (79.80%) of researchers perceived that advisory committee should be made flexible in supporting the research work during post lock down period. As a consequence, appropriate strategies need to be adopt by the university and flexibility has to be made for carrying out research work. On this study majority of researchers perceived that the study covered the complete mind reading aspect of the researchers and they are hoping that responses and suggestions given by them will be taken into consideration for taking necessary action.
