We are doing this prestigious work since 2010 with team of experienced staff and multi dimensional infrastructure facilities.

Agriculture plays a vital role in India’s economy. 54.6% of the population is engaged in agriculture and allied activities (census 2011) and it contributes 17% to the country’s Gross Value Added (current price 2015-16, 2011-12 series). As per the land use statistics 2013-14, the total geographical area of the country is 328.7 million hectares, of which 141.4 million hectares is the reported net sown area and 200.9 million hectares is the gross cropped area with a cropping intensity of 142 %. The net sown area works out to be 43% of the total geographical area. The net irrigated area is 68.2 million hectares.
Central Statistics Office (CSO), Ministry of Statistics & Program Implementation has released the New Series of National Accounts, based upon revising the base year from 2004-05 to 2011-12. As per the Provisional Estimates released by CSO on 31.05.2016, the Agriculture and Allied sector contributed approximately 17.0% of India’s Gross Value Added (GVA) at current prices during 2015-16. Gross Value Added (GVA) of Agriculture, this is very low as per our expectation.
On other hand the value of Indian rupee is decreasing day by day, in 1917 the value of Indian Rupee against US dollar was 17 rupees per dollar, today’s scenario is very disappointing, and now it is reached on more than 70 rupees per dollar.
This situation is changing slowly day by day because of some reasons, During the time of Indus Vally Civilization our country was one of the rich and prosperous country in the world in terms of health, wealth and knowledge, because our agriculture practices was sustainable and rich, like making own Seeds and Manures, use of Vedic culture practices was common, this in result gives the of quality of our food grains, spices and other agriculture produces was superior to any other countries product, so that demand for that produce was high.
To change this current scenario we have to make every Indian citizen who is related to agriculture to be productive, and this can be done with the help of providing right kind of information and knowledge to them.
Today’s youth is not interested to become farmer or doing agriculture practices, because he sees failure and bankruptcy of his father due to costly inputs and low prices for their produce as well as deterioration of land.
Today farmers are helpless to left farming due to harsh conditions in this sector; these harsh conditions are arise due to, our government policies toward Agriculture and effect of globalization or Foreign Direct Investment.
Looking at this situation founder of this institute Mr. Atul Gupta has made the promise to nation to provide solution for this harsh condition, his aim is to provide unique kind of knowledge to world so that every human being will be healthy and economically independent. This vision in mind he has started International Institute of Advanced Agriculture Skill Development in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
