About Institute
Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra at Car Nicobar

The Education Commission (1966-76) recommended establishing specialized institutions for vocational education in agriculture and allied fields, naming them 'Agricultural Polytechnics'. Discussions with the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Planning Commission, and Indian Council of Agricultural Research (1966-72) led to the establishment of Krishi Vigyan Kendras (Agricultural Science Centres). In 1973, the ICAR Standing Committee on Agricultural Education emphasized the importance of Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) for accelerating agricultural production and improving socio-economic conditions. A committee was formed to develop a detailed plan, and the first KVK was established in 1974 at Puducherry under Tamil Nadu Agricultural University.

To effectively fulfill the mission, the following actions should be required: educating people about innovative agricultural technologies: finding technologies for site-specific sustainable land use systems by carrying out on-farm testing (OFTs). Setting up Front Line Demonstrations (FLDs) of different crops/livestock/ fishes etc. based on the needs of the regions in order to collect production data and feedback.

KVK Nicobar was sanctioned for Nicobar District in 2010 by ICAR, New Delhi. The foundation stone was laid on 13th September, 2010, in Arong village, by Dr. S. Ayyappan, Secretary, Department of Agriculture, Research and Education (DARE), Ministry of Agriculture, GOI and Director General, ICAR, New Delhi at Arong village in presence of dignitaries viz. Shri. Vivek Rae, Chief Secretary, A&N Admn., with dignitaries, village captains, and farmers from 15 villages of Car Nicobar present.
