Agricultural Universities in India have a great scope to contribute to the human resource development in agricultural sector, whereby imparting skill and knowledge transformation,to help in the holistic improvement in the human livelihoods. Thus agricultural education and extension play a vital role in strengthening Indian economy both through production and productivity, and also education and research.

Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is the apex body for coordinating, guiding and managing research and education in agriculture including horticulture, fisheries and animal husbandry in the entire country. ICAR Institutes along with State Agricultural Universities constitute the National Agricultural Research System (NARS). ICAR provides support to the Agricultural Universities through Development Grant, All India Coordinated Research Projects and Krishi Vigyan Kendras on continuous basis.

Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has only mentoring and facilitating role. The execution of ICAR policy and programmes depends to a great extent on the support of State Government. In the era of globalization, when Indian universities are forming linkages with overseas universities and pressure on
SAUs to deliver results, bureaucratic hurdles must be removed through policy support of the State Government.

In this backdrop the 38th IAUA Vice-Chancellors’ Conference has been organized on the theme “Centre – State Relationship in Agricultural Universities” on December 18-20, 2013 at Birsa Agricultural University, Ranchi with the objective to find ways and means to strengthen the relationship between the Centre and State for enabling the Agricultural Universities to contribute meaningfully to the cause of national food and household livelihood security.
