ARIS cell was renamed as AKMU as per ICAR guidelines (F.No. 3-1/2010-GAS (DIPA) dt 27 January, 2011. The AKMU came into being in the terminal years of VIII Five Year Plan. Information technology and agriculture, both were considered incongruous to each other few decades ago, but now the scenario has changed. Today, information system is being widely incorporated with agriculture. Information technology always had the potential to increase the quality of farming and farming products, but it demands efficiency and information in every area of agriculture. With revolution in information technology, access to desired information by scientists and research managers has assumed paramount importance. With this in view, AKMU is trying to integrate information system and databases through an electronic network linking NARS institutions to support planning and management of agricultural research. At present AKMU is equipped with necessary hardware and software. The goal of AKMU is to strengthen Information management culture using modern tools within the NARS so that the agriculture research becomes more efficient and effective. The major objectives are:

  • ❖ To put information close to scientists and managers.
  • ❖ To build capacity to organize, store, retrieve and use relevant information into agricultural research infrastructure.
  • ❖ To share information over national agricultural research system.
  • ❖ To improve capacity to plan, execute, monitor and evaluate research program.
  • ❖ To promote ICT driven technology and information dissemination system for quick, effectual and cost-effective delivery of messages to all the stakeholders in agriculture.

Keeping pace with the current knowledge diffusion trends, AKMU is delivering and showcasing technologies, policies, publicity support and other activities of the institute through, electronic and web mode.

Routine activities of AKMU

  • ❖ Local Area Network (LAN): Maintenance of LAN infrastructure of the Institute.
  • ❖ The internet connectivity: Lease line of the institute under National Knowledge Network (NKN) provided by ICAR and Fibre to The Home (FTTH) provided by BSNL.
  • ❖Maintenance and Updating of Institute Website: The Institute website provides overall research activities and achievements of ICAR NEH and its regional centres.
