Abstract:

A subsidy based credit linked training programme “agriclinics and agribusiness centres scheme” was launched by government of India on 9th April, 2002 to strengthen the transfer of technology, extension services and also provide self-employment opportunities to technically trained agricultural graduates. The present study was conducted on the basis of primary data collected through field survey from 150 sample agrigraduates in Rajasthan state during 2011 to 2015. The 50 trained agrigraduates were randomly selected as sample agripreneurs from each NTI in three batches i.e. recently batch 2013, middle batch 2007 and beginning batch 2002-03. Primary data were collected through questionnaires which were pretested with a sample of 25 agrigraduates in the same study area but other than the non-sample agrigraduates. Pre-testing of instruments was done to know whether the contents and forms of the questionnaire were valid, reliable and easily understandable by the respondents or not. The statistics such as frequencies, scores, percentages and ranking were used to analyse the various aspects of the scheme. Present study examines the whole scheme from various angles (aspects) such as sources of information, place of training, year of completion, factors motivated to join training programme, facilities provided by the training institutes, study material, courses offered in training, classes conducted by the training institutes, seriousness of candidate about training and final feedback of the trainees about training programme. In findings, it was found that friends and newspaper were the major source of information about the ACABCs training programme as it was responded by 76.00 per cent and 13.34 per cent of total 150 agripreneurs while MPUAT, Udaipur was found to be very good training institute with the mean scores of 56.80, followed by JSBFM, Jaipur and RICEM Udaipur were found to be good with the mean scores of 51.10 and 50.70 respectively.
