Him Kukkut Palan Yojna

- Advertisement -


The scheme “Him Kukkut Palan Yojna” was launched by the Department of Animal Husbandry, Government of Himachal Pradesh to provide the subsidy to the entrepreneurs/farmers who are interested and engaged in poultry farming in the state. Since more and more poultry farmers have shown an inclination towards adopting poultry as per occupation consequent to their success in backyard schemes, they want the department to focus on commercial broiler farming in the state as well. For the benefit of such entrepreneurs/farmers and seeing the benefits of poultry rearing as an enterprise, such farmers need to be incentivized by way of assistance through Government by Broiler scheme on a subsidy basis in the state.

The following aims and objectives will also be achieved:-

  • To provide a good diet to the people of the state. It will be possible to make poultry available at reasonable rates if it is produced locally. Large rural populations face the problem of protein-calorie malnutrition, thus needing animal proteins with high biological values which can be met through poultry meat.
  • To augment the income of the rural people where poultry farming along with livestock rearing is being carried on as a mixed farming complementary to crop production.
  • Doubling of income of farmers.
  • To increase the employment opportunities for the rural population since most of them are unemployed or grossly underemployed.
  • To produce manure of high grade at a minimal cost.
