Sub-division of all the above activities in a project mode under each initiative of Component B would be the precondition for release of project funds to ATMAs.

III. Policy and Regulatory Environment:

13. Following are the issues related to policy & regulatory environment:

i.   Department  of  Agriculture  (PIU-Agriculture)  is  the  main  implementing  agency  of  this component. It is the only agency at present for agri-extension.
