The effectiveness of training is a measurement of learning of the training programme. It is a complex concept that involves many interrelated activities. Generally effectiveness measures are defined in terms of the extent to which a set of objectives are met. In order to know whether the Krishi Vigyan KendraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s (KVK) are functioning well, assessment of their effectiveness is very important and so the study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of KVK training programmes through the perception of the trainees. The present study was carried out in Manipur during 2015-16. Ex-post facto research design was employed. 150 respondents (trainees) were selected on stratified random sampling with proportional allocation method. Primary data was collected using pre-tested structured interview schedule.Overall training effectiveness score of the training programme worked out to be 79.02 per cent which indicated that the KVK training was perceived as very effective by the respondents. The farmers also expressed that the KVK staffs were technically competent on practical session and providing opportunities to trainees for participating in deliberations.
