Abstract:

The present study was conducted in the state, Arunachal Pradesh. Three districts viz., Papumpare, East Siang and West Siang were purposively selected based on the highest number of filled up post of agricultural officer. There are all total 64 officials in these three districts. So census method was followed for selecting the respondents. The ‘perceived training needs’ of respondent was the dependent variable of the study. There were ten independent variables selected for the study viz. age, gender, family size, educational level, family background, training exposure, mass media exposure, service length, job performance and organizational climate. The data were collected through interview schedule. Frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Spearman’s rank correlation and multiple regression were used in analysis and data interpretation. Majority of the respondents were male (83.30%) in between 35-50 years of age (88.30%) and B.Sc. Agri. graduate (88.30%). They had family size of 5-7 members (58.30%), were from rural background (63.30%), had medium exposure to training (61.70%) and mass media (75.00%). Half of the respondents had service length ranging from 11-16 years, had medium level of job performance (45.00%) and they perceived a favourable organizational climate towards their department (65.00%). The study also revealed that majority of the respondents had high level of training needs (63.30%). Correlation analysis revealed that age, service length, training exposure and job performance had negative and significant correlation with training needs. Multiple regression, R2 value being 0.449 revealed that 44.90 per cent of the variation in the dependent variable is explained by the independent variables. The R2 value for the two significant variables job performance and training exposure being 0.157 suggests that the two variables training exposure and job performance jointly contributes to15.70 per cent towards training needs.
