  • Executive Order: Submission of articles for Sanam Drupdrey 2017

    Encouraged by the huge popularity of the annual Sanam Drupdrey (RNR-Magazine) which serves as a medium for the Ministry to share its motivating stories of success and innovation in the fields of agriculture, livestock and forestry, ICS will be publishing the 7th issue of Sanam Drupdrey in 2017. Sanam Drupdrey has a very extensive readership within and abroad. Although, we record many achievements in the Ministry, regrettably many are not highlighted in the Magazine.

    Therefore, I urge all the Departments, Agencies, Research Centres, Divisions, Central Programs and Dzongkhag Offices to contribute mandatorily at least two articles for Sanam Drupdrey 2017.
