Welcome to NARI

NARI is registered under the Societies Registration Act XII of 1860 and the Bombay Public Trust Act of 1950. It is situated in the rural town of Phaltan ( a taluka) in Maharashtra state. For the detailed map and location of the Institute please see it in Google Map.
The Institute undertakes research and development in agriculture, renewable energy, animal husbandry and sustainable development. Research at NARI is always undertaken with the intention of improving the lives of rural Indians in a sustainable manner.
The research can also be helped by your donations. Donation by companies to NARI could also form a part of their CSR activity. A short document details how this can be achieved. Your donations both in cash and kind will help us carry forward the work on rural development.
