About ICAR- CRIJAF:

The Central Jute Commission established the Jute Agricultural Research Laboratory (JARL) in Dhaka in 1938. Following the country's partition, the Jute Agricultural Research Laboratory relocated to Chinsura in West Bengal, and then to its current location of Nilganj in Barrackpore in 1953 as the Jute Agricultural Research Institute (JARI). In 1966, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) took over JARI. In January 1990, the institute was renamed the Central Research Institute for Jute and Allied Fibres (CRIJAF).

The goal of the ICAR-CRIJAF is to explore traditional and new frontier science areas for technology development, promotion, and policy direction for a thriving, productive, and resilient jute and allied fibre agriculture.
