I recently found that Jagadis Bose National Science Talent Search (JBNSTS), (located in Kolkata near my house) allows students to use their laboratory for a fee. Moreover, I have received a scholarship from them, and as a consequence, they will let me do anything I like in their lab provided that they have the instruments and I let them know in advance.

While I have an option of doing small experiments, like I generally perform at home on topics like Diffraction and electronics, I want to utilise the opportunity by doing some research work.

On their website, they have wtitten this:

Sudents are allowed to plan and carry out research work for their projects under the guidance of different faculty members of JBNSTS and from other institutions. During this session, students are allowed to work independently / group with several instruments such as, Source Measuring Unit, Metallurgical Microscope, Biological Microscopes, Scanning Tunneling Microscope, micro Centrifuge, UV-VIS, Spectrophotometer, Millican Oil-drop Experimental setup etc.

Can you recommend good topics for research? It should preferably be on optics, electronics, spectroscopy and similar topics.

I know that I can't start with anything directly without reading literature and research papers that scientists have already written. Hence, I want to keep some time in hand and start early, so that I can do the experiments by next year.

My guess would be that the professors would be the ones to assign relevant topics for you to explore. If that is the case go ask them.

If it is not, I do still advise you to ask some scientists there if you are going for real research. It is hard to know what exactly is interesting enough yet easy enough to delve into. These people there have experience in choosing topics. Yet if you are just interested in something and want to go deeper into it without the whole publishing thing, then it should be easy enough to find something that interests you and is available for them.

Personally, I think that spectroscopy is one of the more fun sides of lab experiments. Highly recommended.
Hope this helps!
