Admission Notices

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is an autonomous organisation under the Department of Agricultural Research and Education (DARE), Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare , Government of India. Formerly known as Imperial Council of Agricultural Research, it was established on 16 July 1929 as a registered society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 in pursuance of the report of the Royal Commission on Agriculture. The ICAR has its headquarters at New Delhi. The Council is the apex body for co-ordinating, guiding and managing research and education in agriculture including horticulture, fisheries and animal sciences in the entire country. With 101 ICAR institutes and 71 agricultural universities spread across the country this is one of the largest national agricultural systems in the world. The ICAR has played a pioneering role in ushering Green Revolution and subsequent developments in agriculture in India through its research and technology development that has enabled the country to increase the production of foodgrains by 5.4 times, horticultural crops by 10.1 times, fish by 15.2 times, milk 9.7 times and eggs 48.1 times since 1951 to 2017, thus making a visible impact on the national food and nutritional security. It has played a major role in promoting excellence in higher education in agriculture. It is engaged in cutting edge areas of science and technology development and its scientists are internationally acknowledged in their fields.

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research is an apex research organization of the country with a high standing amongst international agricultural research institutions. Since its inception in 1930, the Council has been spearheading agricultural research, education and extension activities for productivity enhancement and diversification of Indian agriculture.

The world as a whole is undergoing several transformative changes. Growing population, changing lifestyles, expanding urbanization and accelerated climate changes are creating new challenges for the national agricultural research system. Whereas in the past, the challenge was to supply adequate food, but now it is to provide adequate nutrients to promote health; and in the future, the challenge would be to provide optimal nutrients based on individual’s genetic profile. Fortunately, along with challenges, the developments in science are creating new avenues for tackling the challenges. The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and the National Agricultural Research and Education System at large, are determined to harness the advances of science for the welfare of society. The Council is committed to transform itself into an organization engaged fully with the farmers, industry, entrepreneurs and consumers at large.

To keep pace with the changing environment, the ICAR has been updating its visions and strategies from time to time. The first systematic effort to envision the challenges and opportunities, and formulate its own strategy was undertaken in the last year of the 20th century by preparing ‘Vision 2020 document’. The next attempt was after five years by bringing out the ‘Perspective Plan’ and the ‘ICAR Vision 2030’, coinciding with XI plan. ‘ICAR Vision 2050’, provides the strategic framework for innovation-led inclusive and sustainable agricultural growth in the country.
