NOTE: This is the first time the NAIP “Components” are specifically laid out but there have been several references to the components earlier in the text above. This is why it may be desirable to already refer to the NAIP components where the objectives are laid out (page 4). Otherwise the para below should come much earlier.
The NAIP comprises four components:
(1) ICAR as the Catalyzing Agent for Management of Change in the Indian NARS.
(2) Research on Production to Consumption Systems.
(3) Research on Sustainable Rural Livelihood Security (SRLS).
(4) Basic and Strategic Research in the Frontier Areas of Agricultural Sciences (BSR).
