About AIASA

  • AIASA is a professional society of present and former students in the field of Agriculture, Veterinary, Dairy, Horticulture, Fisheries, Forestry, Home science, Sericulture, ABM and other allied sciences, registered under Societies Registration act 1860.

  • The Society was formally launched on 10th May, 2011 by the then Hon’ble Union Minister of state for Agriculture during the All India Convention on Agricultural Administrative Reforms and the website was launched by the Hon’ble Union minister of agriculture.

  • The Society was registered on 1st Dec 2011 under the Societies Registration act 1860, with the approval of Ministry of Agriculture, ICAR and Ministry of Consumer affairs. Down the course of time, the drift between the technical work force and bureaucracy has increased abysmally harming the cause of farming sector and farmers at the national and state level.

  • Policy making in agriculture has been largely limited to subsidies and loan disbursement, with negligible component of science in it. AIASA envisions a common platform where Agriculturists and Bureaucrats will work together for the Indian agriculture - with a “Right person at Right place” mode, to promote more application of science which is often left back. AIASA is established with the prime motto to bridge the drift and strengthen the voice of the agriculturalists, veterinarians, fishery experts and personnel of all allied fields at national and respective state level.

  • AIASA advocates and fights the long pending issue of creation of the All India Cadre of “Indian Agriculture Service” for appointment of right person at the right place. Grant of professional status to agriculture sector at par with other professions is also a prime demand of time for better job opportunities and career advancement of the personnel serving the primary sector.
