ICFA District Councils

A district in India is most important unit with full administration and authority of the State functioning at the district headquarter. The district is further divided along Tehsils and Blocks for the convenience of administration and development, but reporting to the institutions at the district level, which has officers of all the departments of the State and also the presence of major institutions. All schemes and programs of the State and Central Governments are executed by the District Authorities. India has about 700 districts and each district has an average population of 2 million people with farmers making up almost 50% plus of this population. The need has been felt for a long time for having an institutional mechanism at the district level outside the Government, where all the key stake-holders could regularly meet and deliberate upon the issues and agenda, learn by experiences sharing and to prepare overall vision paper for the district development besides connecting farmers to the schemes, programs, best practices, technologies and the industry so as to help them improve their farming. With this background ICFA has created a unique institution of District Agriculture Council, with its approx. 50 member district board to have progressive farmers, officials, professionals, industry and bankers and public representatives. Later more farmers and professionals could join as its district body members. ICFA is launching DACs in five districts on experimental basis during 2017 and with the experience, it plans to complete setting up DACs in 500 rural districts by 2020. Important stake-holders are invited to log on and register or write to us for co-opting them on the relevant DACs.
