During the year 2011-12, IASRI worked on 72 research projects (01 National Professor Scheme, 35 Institute funded, 16 funded by other outside agencies and 20 in collaboration with other Institutions). 18 projects have been completed and 34 new projects have been initiated. The Institute has successfully implemented its flagship programme on Strengthening Statistical Computing for NARS, which have paved the way for statistical thinking and publishing research papers in high impact factor journals. For providing service oriented computing, Indian NARS Statistical Computing portal has been strengthened by adding the link of augmented block designs. Web based Softwares Statistical Package for Agricultural Research (SPAR 3.0), Software for Survey Data Analysis (SSDA 2.0) and Web based generation and analysis of Partial Diallel Crosses (WebPDC) have been developed. For Half-Yearly Progress Monitoring (HYPM) of the Scientists in ICAR, web based software for online submission of half yearly progress report of the scientists has been designed and developed. Extended group divisible designs, fractional factorial plans and appropriate statistical techniques have been recommended to researchers of NARS through advisory services. Twenty one training programmes were organised (Two under Center of Advanced Faculty Training; two Winter Schools; one for officials of Andhra Pradesh; one for ISS Probationers, one for CSO officials; three International Training programmes, one for Sri Lankan participants and two sponsored by AARDO; Nine training programmes under various research projects and two other training programmes through outsourcing). In all 437 participants were trained in these training programmes. Five Sensitization-cum-Training Workshops were organised for Nodal officers of HYPM, three for Nodal Officers under NISAGENET, oneWorkshop under PIMS-ICAR, one under NAIP Consortium SSCNARS and one under Evaluation of Agricultural Census Scheme. Two Partners Meet under NAIP Consortium and one Interactive Meet were also organised. Institute also celebrated the Birth Centenary of Professor PV Sukhatme on 27 July 2011. Scientists of the Institute published 90 research papers in National and International refereed Journals along with 20 popular articles, 11 book chapters, 38 projects/technical reports/reference manuals/leaflet brochures and 03 macros. Some faculty members received academic distinctions during the year. Dr. VK Bhatia conferred upon the prestigious title of Sankhyiki Bhushan, Dr. Rajender Parsad received National Award in Statistics for Young Statistician, Dr. Prajneshu received Prof. PV
Sukhatme Gold Medal Award, Dr. Yogita Gharde received Dr. GR Seth Memorial Young Scientist Award, Dr. Eldho Varghese received IARI Merit Medal, and Dr. Anil Kumar received Young Professional Award 2011. The scientists of the Institute were deputed for presentation of their papers in various national/international conferences. This year three scientists were deputed to present their papers to Germany, Brazil and Ireland.
