Indian Jute Industries' Research Association [IJIRA] was established in 1937, the first co-operative R & D organisation to render services to the Indian Jute Industry and Government Agencies who were promoting Indian Jute in domestic market as well as exporting to the other countries. Beginning as IJMARI in 1937, the institute has grown over the years. The present imposing building was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India - Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
Indian Jute Industries’ Research Association (IJIRA) has a unique position in the Jute World. It was the first R & D organization of its kind to look after the interests of the Jute industry. For many decades, it has been providing Yeoman’s service to the Industry and the Nation. More than 75 years of existence speaks volume of the work done by the Institution. With a new group of Scientists & Technologists aptly supported by a good Administration, IJIRA is now poised to achieve new heights. I wish the Institution all the very best for its current and future endeavors.
