     The first KVK was established in 1974 at Pondicherry under the administrative control of the Tamilnadu Agriculture University, Coimbtore. The number of KVKs increased 290 during the V to IX Five Year Plan. The Hon'ble Prime Minister of India announced that by the end of 2007 there should be one KVK in each district of the country.
