AIEEA PG 2014 – All India Entrance Examination for Admission
Triggered primarily by professional and academic linkage with Agricultural Universities (AUs), ICAR has been able to foster a countrywide arrangement with the AUs to set aside 25% seats of their seats for Master degree programmes to be admitted through ICAR’s All India Entrance Examination so as to reduce inbreeding, increase mobility among students, encourage national integration and infuse merit and uniform examination standards leading to improved overall quality of agricultural education. Besides, all (100%) seats of the four ICAR-DUs namely, Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI), National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) and Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE) are also filled up through the same examination. ICAR’s 19th AIEEA-PG-2014 examination for the academic session 2014-15 will be conducted at 34 examination city centers spread all over the country enabling participation of a large number of candidates seeking admission in Master degree programmes in AUs in different disciplines of Agriculture, Horticulture, Forestry, Veterinary, Animal Sciences, Agri. Engineering, Home Science, Fisheries, Dairy Science and other allied sciences. ICAR Junior Research Fellowships for postgraduate studies namely, ICAR-JRF (PGS) will be awarded to 475 candidates based on merit in this examination as per their overall merit-rank and seat availability in different disciplines. Candidates qualified for counseling will be considered for allocation of subject and the Agricultural University as per counseling procedure. There is no direct nomination through ICAR in any Master degree programme without qualifying in this examination.
