Acharya NG Ranga Agriculture University, once a premium agriculture university in the country is now suffering from paucity of funds. The university which has over rs. 50 cr budget spends Rs. 45 cr for salaries of the scientists and about Rs. 5 cr. for research. Even in the research budget much of the budget goes for hi-tech research which never reaches the field. There is an urgent need to make an assessment of the funding and outputs.
