Abstract:

The Govt. of India has stressed for computer assisted extension system due to shortage of funds, large untrained staffs and inadequate extension personnel. A study conducted with 174 extension functionaries and 40 KVK scientists on competency of extension professionals revealed that the respondents had good access to computer, knowledge about various software applications and using computer in various aspects of the extension related job work. But, they did not have much expertise and confidence level. Training and exposure are essentially required to develop their competency particularly on video and photo editing, repairing of miner problems, expertise in HP, Nero etc., ICT use in computer, expertise in media player and scanning software, proper maintenance of computer, data analysis, handling external hard disc correctly and expertise in MS Power Point along with adequate financial support enabling them for effective implementation of the computer based extension system.
