Dr R.C. Agrawal, DDG (Agri. Edn) speaks:

A National Core Group has been constituted by ICAR for development of Academic Regulations for Masters and Ph.D. programmes, defining names and curricula of Masters’ and Ph.D. disciplines for uniformity and revision of syllabi for courses of Masters’ and Ph.D. degree disciplines. On the recommendations of the members of National Core Group, 19 Broad Subject Matter Area (BSMA) Committees have been constituted for revising the syllabus. These committees have conducted several meetings with the concerned experts and stakeholders and developed the syllabus for their respective subjects. While developing the syllabi, various provisions of National Education Policy-2020 have also been considered and complied to provide quality higher education and develop good, thoughtful, well-rounded, and creative individuals.

 Members of BSMA on Animal Production Sciences (BSMA-APS) speak:

At the outset, we, on behalf of all the Members of BSMA on Animal Production Sciences (BSMA-APS), would like to thank the Indian Council of Agricultural Research for nominating us to revise the syllabi. The BSMA on Animal Production Sciences has been tasked with the revision of the existing ICAR syllabi in respect of five disciplines namely, Animal Genetics and Breeding, Animal Nutrition, Livestock Production and Management, Livestock Products Technology and Poultry Science. This enormous task has been successfully completed thanks to the sincere efforts of all the Members of the BSMA-APS Committee. During this revision process, a total of four workshops were carried out at different parts of the country to facilitate greater participation of the faculty involved in the postgraduate teaching. We would, therefore, like to express my sincere gratitude to the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellors of Chhattisgarh Kamdhenu University (Durg), Assam Agricultural University (Guwahati), PV Narsimha Rao Telangana Veterinary University (Hyderabad) and SK University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir (Srinagar) for their kind consent to host the workshops.
