Nabard has conducted a workshop on subsidy-linked investment credit-related central sector schemes in animal husbandry sector at Malappuram.

Inaugurating the workshop Mr N.K. Antony, Additional District Magistrate, stressed the need of to achieve self-sufficiency in milk production in the State rather than depending on the neighbouring States. In agriculture sector, he said the investment credit activities will result in capital formation and in turn benefit the farmer in getting sustainable livelihood.

In this context, he requested the bankers, the dairy co-operatives, the Government Departments officials to help the farmers and entrepreneurs of the district to make full use of the various subsidy schemes such as Venture Capital Fund for Poultry Sectors, Dairy Entrepreneurship Development scheme and other Capital Investment Subsidy schemes on male buffalo rearing, rabbit rearing and goat rearing to be promoted in a big way in the district. All the activities have immense potential in Malappuram district, which has a huge non-vegetarian population.

Earlier Mr P. Unnikrishnan, Lead District Manager, welcomed the participants to the workshop. Mr K.P. Padmakumar, District Development Manager, made presentation on various schemes and guided the workshop. He stressed the need of co-ordinated efforts of Bankers, Departments, Farmer Clubs and NGOs towards grass root level promotion of the schemes.
