Strengthening Statistical Computing for NARS
The National Information System on Agricultural Education Network in India (NISAGENET) portal is being maintained at the Central Server of IASRI, New Delhi and is accessible at http://www.iasri.res.in/Nisagenet/ to provide Country/State/University/College level reporting on agricultural education in India.
In view of the importance of NISAGENET, ICAR vide letter No. 6(1)/2010-EP&D dated 12-08-2010, the competent authority has approved it to maintain as a regular ongoing activity of the ICAR and it is mandatory for all the SAUs, AUs, Central Universities and Deemed Universities of ICAR to participate and provide the data as per requirements of this system.
Under NISAGENET broadly the information on Academic, Infrastructural facilities, Budget provision, Manpower and Research & Development activities of all the AUís and Deemed universities of ICAR along with their constituent/affiliated colleges would be collected, compiled and integrated at the country level.
In order to provide realistic and up-to-date reporting through NISAGENET, it is essential to update and validate the existing data and regular updating from all the Agricultural Universities along with their constituent/affiliated colleges is equally important for providing Country/State/University/College level reporting from the system.
The architecture of NISAGENET has been restructured so that the participating organizations would be able to have direct access to IASRI Central Server for updating / uploading the data of their respective university/colleges. For Data Management secured UserId and Passwords have been made available to all the universities.
To expedite the data entry process, updating, validation of the existing data and regular updating from all the Agricultural Universities along with their constituent/affiliated colleges, a series of sensitization workshops may be organized. This reference guide will help all the Nodal Officers and the staff responsible for data entry to manage the data entry activities in a more effective and efficient manner.
To provide realistic and up-to-date reporting through NISAGENET, it is essential that the data entry process, updating, and validation of the existing data from all the Agricultural Universities along with their constituent/affiliated colleges remain operational.
