PROPOSED CHANGES IN ORGANIZATION, PROGRAMMES AND BUDGET
Following additional staff would be required to meet the objectives of CSFER Allahabad effectively:
Scientists : 04* Research Officers : 04 Research Assistants I & II : 06 Librarian : 01 UDC : 02 Store Keeper : 01 Driver : 03 Group D : 04
One each in Soil Science, Extension, Ecology & Tissue Culture
When the Centre was established in 1992 make shift posts were made available to it. At the time of upgradation as Institute (1995) 4 scientists and 4 research officers were recruited by ICFRE for this centre. However, at present none of them is posted there and have been transferred else where. It is felt that at least 3 RAI and 3RA II would be required to assist the scientists as the centre has only one RAI and one RA II at present. There is no staff for the Library. There are three vehicles without drivers. Hence 3 drivers are required. 4 group D staff would be required to run the office and other activities smoothely.
