The Information and Sales Centre (I&SC), Mannuthy was established in 1993 as an independent unit under the Administrative control of the Directorate of Extension, Kerala Agricultural University. The objective of the Centre was to establish a single window system to make available information and resources of the KAU for farmers. Conceptual clarity and proper co-ordination between the production centers and the I&SC transformed the I&SC into an effective single window facility for transfer of technology. This successful experiment gained National attention and prompted ICAR to develop a national project under NATP for dissemination of information and technology viz. Agricultural Technology Information Centre (ATIC). In the year 2000, the I&SC was upgraded as ATIC under NATP Project funded by ICAR. With the official operation of the ATIC commencing in 2000, the KAU imbibed the full spirit and object of ATIC and began translating ICAR’s vision into reality.
