Scheduled Caste Sub Plan

During Jan-Dec 2019, ICAR-CIFA has undertaken several activities in West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Tamilnadu, Punjab states towards socio-economic development of Scheduled Caste people. Promotion of scientific carp culture, backyard poultry farming were undertaken.  These activities have benefitted 997 families.  Preliminary survey was conducted and baseline data were collected prior to implementation of the work.  An workshop was conducted at kultali, West Bengal for development of action plan involving major stakeholders. The scientists of the institute also distributed carp seed and demonstrated carp seed rearing. They also demonstrated use of lime and supplementary feed  in aquaculture for better production. The farmers, all belonging to Scheduled Caste community, were exposed for the first time to scientific carp culture. They are eager to learn and are enthusiastic about scientific ways of fish farming.  In Punjab two workshops were held in order to create awareness about fish farming. Farmers, state department officials, KVK , SHGs took part in these programmes. In Tamilnadu cages developed by TANVASU were procured and distributed among SC farmers  for rearing of poultry birds. One workshop cum awareness programme on “Benefits of Scientific fish farming for nutritional security”  was conducted at Guntur ,AndhraPradesh. It is envisaged that socio-economic condition of the SC beneficiaries will improve through ICAR CIFA’s intervention under SCSP.
