Message from Chairman
quatation icon

When we achieved independence nearly seven decades ago, India was primarily an agrarian economy with a majority of the population dependent on agriculture and rural livelihoods; and even today a large percentage of our population continue to be dependent on agriculture. In the fifties and sixties, India was not fully self-sufficient in foodgrains as well as livestock products like milk with imports accounting for a substantial share of domestic consumption. Much of this would not have been possible without the professionals that helped these institutions to grow. Recognizing the need for an exclusive institution, Dr Verghese Kurien was instrumental in setting up Institute of Rural Management, Anand (IRMA), to fulfill the mission of developing a cadre of professional managers who would serve not only producer institutions but also other development organizations that would help in all-round development of our rural areas.
