The institute known as ICAR - NIBSM was created after recommendations of the Veerappa Moily Oversight Committee on the implementation of the reservation in higher educational institutions for expansion, inclusion and excellence. The recommendation said “establishment of a dedicated research institute of Deemed-to-be-University Status on Biotic Stress Management”.
