In addition, the university has awarded one year diploma to 56 women who were appointed as Rural Extention Officers by the Government of Madhya Pradesh under a programme funded by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) aimed at providing knowledge and skills of improved agricultural technology to the farm women. The quality education is the top most priority with main thrust on improving the infrastructure and teaching capabilities of the faculty.

All the constituent colleges are equipped with adequate facilities to carry out teaching and research activities. However there is need to upgrade the teaching and research facilities at Agriculture college Tikamgarh and Agriculture college Ganj Basoda.

The Central Library

The Central Library, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur (JNKVV) Jabalpur (M.P.), India is an essential constituent of the Vishwa Vidyalaya’s mandates. The Central Library of JNKVV is one of the major Agricultural Libraries of Central India. The main activity of library is collection, compilation, tabulation, classifying, accessioning, cataloguing and indexing of all types of reading material related to agriculture and allied fields. Theses and books, annual reports, journals, periodicals etc were also processed. About 300 post graduate and doctoral theses are added to the collection of Central Library, every year. The registered users (faculty, staff and students) are given facilities of borrowing books available in the library where they can get the book issued for a fixed period and then return it or renew it. Students in particular are given special facility of Book Bank where the students are provided books for one semester at a 10% price of book.

The amount was utilized for strengthening library facilities at four agricultural colleges (College of Agriculture, Jabalpur, Rewa, Tikamgarh and Gangbasoda) and one agricultural engineering college at Jabalpur.

Amenities are being created in the central library and constituent libraries to provide better facilities for reading to the students, faculty and readers. Civil work is a necessity and has to be done on priority basis to increase the life of the building, waterproofing is essential to prevent leakage and seepage from side walls, which in turns creates dampness and spoils the reading material. Repairing and replacement of doors and windows is essential to ensure safety and security of library holdings. Facility of girl’s toilet is being developed inside the periodical section. Renovation of electrical’s will provide better lighting and air circulation to create congenial atmosphere for using the library facilities. It will also ensure the long life and safety of equipments like photocopier, UPS etc. which run on electricity.

The strength of UG, PG and PhD students is increasing every year. Also the numbers of colleges are also increasing and hence furniture and allied items are being procured for proper storage of reading material like Textbooks/ Reference Books/General Books/ Advances/ Journals/ Dictionaries/ Encyclopedias/Book Series/Annual Reviews/ Monographs/ Serials/ Reading Material and others items. Various newspapers are subscribed for current awareness and newspaper stands are being procured. Notices regarding current opening, conferences/seminars, training etc are displayed on the notice board located in library.
