National Dairy Research Institute Karnal

Establishment

The National Dairy Research Institute metamorphosed from erstwhile Imperial Institute for Animal Husbandry& Dairying, which was established at Bangalore, India in 1923. In 1936, it was expanded and renamed as Imperial Dairy Institute.

It was in 1955 that its Headquarters were shifted to Karnal at the location formerly called Central Cattle Breeding Farm. With a view to consolidate the infrastructure already developed at Bangalore, the unit was reorganised to serve as the Southern Regional Station of the Institute.

In 1962 and 1964, two regional stations were established in Bombay and Kalyani, respectively, to serve as the Western and Eastern regions of the Country. The Western Regional Station (WRS) at Bombay was subsequently closed down in 1984. The Southern and the Eastern Regional Stations continue to provide region specific R&D support for dairy development in relation to the agro-climatic conditions that exist in those areas. In 1970, the Institute’s management was weaned away from the Ministry of Agriculture and brought under the wings of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research with a view to provide greater operational autonomy in research management functions.

In 1989, status of Deemed University was conferred to the Institute for further strengthening the academic programmes for human resource development.
