             Under the World Bank aided National Agricultural Technology Project (NATP), the Innovation in Technology Dissemination (ITD) component, envisages major institutional and operational reforms to generate demand and /or services, providing a cost sharing mechanism for agricultural operation in technology generation, assessment, refinement and dissemination of such knowledge to farmers. Two aspects of I T D i.e. Agricultural technology information transfer and Human Resource Development for technology dissemination need greater emphasis than that at present. For Operationalisation of ITD institution like Agricultural Technology Management Agencies (ATMAs) have been established in 28 districts, four in each state, covering Andhra Pradesh, Maharastra, Bihar, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand and Orissa.
