The present study was carried out in the 4 Districts of Manipur to access the level of role performance as perceived by the agricultural extension personnel (Assistant technology manager) in the revitalized extension system in Manipur. A purposive sampling technique was followed and statistical methods such as frequency, percentage, standard deviation, Pearson product moment coefficient of correlation and multiple regression analysis were used for analysing the data. Data were collected through personal interview method during the period of January 2018 to march 2018. A total of 54 respondents were interviewed with the help of the structured schedule. A total of 12 independent variables were selected for the study which was categorized into three categories, namely ‘Personal variables’,' Psychological variables’ and ‘Organizational variables'. The study implies that the level of role performance of the respondents had positive and significant correlation with training exposure, decision making ability, role awareness, role perception, and attitude towards ATMA, motivational climate, job satisfaction and achievement motivation. The value of coefficient of multiple determination (R2) being 0.780 indicated that the positively correlated significant variables jointly could predict 78 per cent of the variation in level of role performance of the extension personnel.

Keywords: Level of role performance; Agriculture Technology and Management Agency and Extension reform.
