IT & eGovernance focuses on using information
technology for distant learning that enables greater reach

networked with all our extension centres, our partners like

Sciences, National Information Centre, 23 State Institutes
of Rural development and others. Through
videoconferencing this facility will revolutionize the
concept of distance learning in this field by increasing our
reach - helping use reach huge target participant groups, enhancing the training experience and
