With great pleasure and immense satisfaction, I would like to submit that our students have outshone in JRF Examination conducted by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi in recent years and also secured top places in several competitive examinations. I take this opportunity to commend all the successful students as well as faculty members along with all other staff members for their hard work. I am sure that the success will inspire us to work harder to fetch glories to Central Agricultural University, Imphal through our earnest efforts in teaching, research and extension education.
