It is a matter of pride for everyone associated with Uttar Banga Krishi Viswavidyalaya that our alma matter, UBKV legitimately found a place in the list of accreditated universities of India. It is further heartening to note that the Faculty of Agriculture under Uttar Banga Krishi Viswavidyalaya was accreditated by Indian Council of Agricultural Research in this year. My congratulation to each and everyone of you more particularly to those faculties and researchers whose contribution was instrumental in earning the feat. This is a recognition that has increased our responsibilities many fold – responsibilities not only to out perform our own performances through continued value added contributions but also to climb the remaining steps in the ladder to reach the top at least among agricultural universities. Others will also try to excel and in the process our universities will be better placed, healthy competition to surpass each other will flow and that will result in production of 21st century agricultural graduates and post graduates as well as the kind of technologies needed for doubling our food production as we walk the century path..
