Information and Communication Technologies include devices, networks, services and applications. These can range from cutting edge Internet-based technologies and sensing tools to other technologies that have been around for much longer. ICTs are very important mainstay that strengthens the extension activities and will carry new information services to rural women. Access to such new information sources is a crucial requirement for the sustainable development of the current farming systems. The present study was conducted to find the attitude of the rural women towards ICTs. Four hundred respondents were selected for final interview of the study. The study showed that majority of the farmers (77%) have a favourable attitude towards ICTs followed by 14.25 per cent of the respondents have a highly favourable attitude and 8.75 per cent had least favourable attitudes. This means that there is a scope for higher usage of ICTs in disseminating the agriculture related information among the respondents. Similarly significant association had been found between attitude towards ICTs with age, educational qualification, organizational membership and extension contact.
