The Agricultural Technology Information Centres (ATICs) are established to provide greater coordination and intensive interaction between the researchers and technology users beyond individual units of research institutions in contributing towards the dissemination of information. Each ATIC will serve as a "Single Window System" with an objective to help Farmers and other stake holders such as Farmer-Entrepreneurs, Extension workers, Development agencies, Non-Government Agencies( NGOs) and private sector organisations to provide solutions to their location-specific problems in agriculture and make available all the technological information along with technology inputs and products for testing and use by them. The ATICs need to be demand driven and well integrated with research and financially sustainable, lay greater emphasis on location-specific and system based sustainable technologies.
