The mandate of ICAR/DARE includes promotion and coordination of education in agriculture, agro-forestry, animal husbandry, fisheries, home science and allied sciences in the country. ICAR is now embarking upon an ambitious step in further strengthening the National Agricultural Education system in the country through National Agricultural Higher Education Project (NAHEP) with financial assistance of the World Bank by investing on infrastructure, competency and commitment of faculty, and attracting talented students to agriculture. The project would benefit all the Agricultural Universities (AUs), i.e. 63 State Agricultural Universities modelled on the US Land Grant University pattern, 5 Deemed to be Universities (DUs), three Central Agricultural University (CAUs) and four Central Universities (CUs) with Agriculture Faculty.

Project Information Management System (PIMS) for Agricultural Universities (AU-PIMS) has been developed under NAHEP Component 2A, Investments in ICAR Leadership in Agricultural Higher Education. This is an online, workflow based system developed with the objective to create unified information base for research projects. This system will facilitate in information management and improved decision making with long term objective to check duplication in research projects.
