Welfare State(1967 – 1979)

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, we focused extensively on the scientific development of groundwater for drinking and irrigation, pioneering the yield test technology in some of the most challenging geological conditions in the country (hard rocks of peninsular India). This included an estimation of groundwater potentials, assessments of the efficiency of wells and performance of aquifers.

Cattle breeding programmes too shaped the focus of this era and were designed to exclusively transfer high yielding varieties of breeds with the objective of strengthening rural livelihoods.
