The ATMA model is a central government initiative in the year 2005-06, which was designed to be implemented by each state at the district level.. In 2005 the Government of India expanded the ATMA model to 252 districts under SSEPER, and then in 2007 to all districts of the country. At district level the ATMA would be gradually more responsible for all the technology dissemination activities. It would have linkage with all the line departments, research organisations, non-governmental organisations and agencies associated with agricultural development in the district. As the ATMA programme is under operation for the last thirteen years in Assam, the researchable questions may arise that to how and what extent the extension personnel (Members of ATMA Block Technology Team) from respective district performed their role to accomplish the functions/activities of ATMA. Keeping in view, a research study was carried out with the objectives i.e 1. To assess role performance of BTT members of ATMA 2. To find out relationship between the independent variables and the level of role performance of BTT members. 3. To study the Contributory effects of selected independent variables on the role performance of BTT members. A multistage purposive cum random sampling method was followed for selection of the respondents of the study. The findings of the level of role performance of the BTT members revealed that 88.10 per cent of the respondents had low to medium level of performance. Only 11.90 per cent of them were found with high level of role performance. The value of coefficient of multiple regression (R2) being 0.621 indicated that the independent variables jointly contributed 62.10 per cent towards the role performance of BTT members. The F value (F=3.541**) was also found to be significant. This indicates the significant effectiveness of these variables in explaining the role performance of BTT members when all of them were functioning jointly.
