Director Message

In 1922-23 Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore started his experiment on Rural reconstruction in the name of Sriniketan Experiment. The purpose of Sriniketan Experiment was to understand, identify and find solution of the problems of the villages of rural India in general and villages surrounding Santiniketan, and Sriniketan in particular.  As Gurudeva noted, Santiniketan is the land of peace and Sriniketan is the land of prosperity and these are the twin campuses of Visva-Bharati University.

About AERC

The idea of Gurudeva Tagore’s rural reconstruction was primarily focused on village survey and collection of data on different aspects of rural lives. Towards that objective “Sriniketan experiment” was started around 1922-23. The objective of Sriniketan experiment was to understand and identify the problems of villages and also to find their solutions. The objective was also to see how villages of India can be made self-sufficient and prosperous, which, in turn will improve the economic conditions of the village people and make them happy. The activities of Sriniketan experiments were classified into three main branches (i) Research and Experiments, (ii) Training and (iii) Extension and Development.
Later around 1933, Sriniketan Research Project was initiated. In 1954 Agro Economic Research Centre was established with the support of Govt. of India and the projects under Sriniketan Experiment came under the purview of AERC. Readmore....
