      Hi Paradarsini Parida,
      It is really tough to get into research and development labs and industry with M.Sc. Physics qualification. You must require Ph.D. qualification to expect a good and decent career in the field. Though there are some premier labs such as BARC, National Physical Laboratory etc, they prefer candidates with CSIR- JRF or GATE qualification with excellent score. Without CSIR / GATE, it will be very tough to enter into R and D field. We suggest you to consider taking CSIR UGC NET examination for better prospects. You can clear it with a serious preparation for six months. There is so much useful content and guidance and tips on this site for CSIR - UGC NET aspirants. You can explore and use it. All the best!
