The present study is emphasized on find out the awareness level and perception about e- learning among agricultural research scholars at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) India. This research study is based on the primary source of data which was collected from fifty respondents through structured questionnaire during the year 2013. Statistical tools such as frequency, percentage, and standard deviation were used to analyze the data for making interpretation. In this study, it was found that majority of respondents have a low awareness about e-learning whereby it accounted for 70 per cent of the respondents, 10 have moderate awareness about e-learning and only 20 per cent of the respondents have high awareness about e-learning. Overall awareness of respondents about e-learning tended to be low (M=1.44, SD=0.49, range=9-18). Thus, there is need that government should promote researches on the various aspects of e-learning and maintaining standard of e-learning resources by establishing national level standards of e-resources.
