ICAR stands for Indian Council of Agriculture Research and is an independent functional body which is responsibly empowering and coordinating, Agriculture Education & Research related to Agriculture in India. ICAR comes under the Department of Agricultural Research and Education, Ministry of Agriculture ever since its commencement as an autonomous body, standard for Quality of Education and Scientific Research have been redefined. Recently when ICAR 2018 was decided to be conducted online. Due to the lack of the technological advancement in all the Colleges, Students faced trouble in reading the questions as the monitors were displaying diminished data because of technical glitches. This all boils down to raising a petition in Adyar by a women stating that her daughter faced trouble in attempting the exam because of the Faulty Old Computers and Technical Glitches. This problem surfaced for the majority of students and they demanded a re-examination.
So, the 23rd ICAR 2018 Entrance Examination has been canceled and the results have been called off. The examination will be conducted again as per the schedule which will be published online.

There are a lot of achievements by ICAR in the field of research such as inventing the vaccine for bird flu, etc. But collaborations with engineering college has opened doors to bridge the gap between Research and Science field.
What Follows Next is an EVERGREEN Career!
One can choose career under ICAR in the areas of research, one can become an Agricultural Research Scientists (ARS). Also, ICAR has a better option for agricultural graduates, postgraduates and for doctorate degree holders to get into the fertilizer industries.
