The Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, IGKV came into existence in June, 1984 with the objective to impart need-based and skill-oriented training to farmers, farm women, rural youth and field level extension functionaries in agricultural production and allied fields.
       More than 40% population of this district belongs to SC and ST. The effective transfer of technology is crucial for accelerating the pace of rural development in this area. There is a big gap between the technology available at agricultural research stations and technologies being practiced in the farmers’ fields. Attempts have been made by this KVK to provide need based trainings and technologies to rural community and extension functionaries.
        In spite of some limitations, this KVK has marched ahead in achieving its objective and accelerate the pace of development through effective transfer of technology to the rural people by reducing the techno-extension gap.
