Human resource development and training programmes are the key factors in enhancing productivity and quality in various sectors by improving fitness and skill power of their stakeholders. Keeping this in view, Central Tasar Research and Training Institute (CTR&TI), Ranchi has taken up the task of designing and organizing various ample training programmes for effective human resource development and training in tasar culture. During 2010-11and 2011-12, a number of training programmes were organized at CTR&TI and a total 87 and 98 batches 1801and 1626 beneficiaries respectively were imparted training on various aspects of tasar culture. The training programmes included Structured Course i.e., Post-Graduate Diploma in Sericulture - PGDS (NM) for graduates and various short-term Certificate Courses for extension officials and farmers. To assess the quality, effectiveness and impact of training programmes, a systematic analysis was made on the basis of various parameters such as the extent of facilities provided, training efficiency, overall management and coordination of the programme and other indices calculated based on pre- and post-training data collected from the trainees. The results indicated that the trainees of PGDS (NM) course had very good opinion about course content, evaluation system, course coordination and duration. However, they opined for some improvement in faculty performance to make their teaching more interesting and effective by using modern audio-visual aids. The data reveled that higher level of improvement in knowledge level of all the trainee groups, ranging from 55.4 to 99.4 during 2010-11and 56.7 to 91.6% during 2011-12. The improvement in knowledge level in tasar culture technology led to increase the rate of technology adoption by the farmers. The technology adoption rate was higher in case of tasar silkworm seed production (56.4 - 51.7%) followed by silkworm rearing (25.4 - 25.1%); whereas it was lowest in case of tasar host plant maintenance (19.6-25.3%).
