Preparation of Departmental Vision cum Roadmap for Development of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sector in the State of Assam, India

In recent years, the Government of India has renewed its XI plan focus of decentralized planning in Agriculture and each state has been entrusted with the huge responsibility of utilizing the earmarked funds through various planned investments (in project mode) as per its own plan and priorities. The government is also restructuring and rationalizing centrally sponsored schemes. Outcome budgeting concepts at the state level linked to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) have been introduced. Having a vision document and work plan based on local priorities with SDG action plan is imperative for line departments within agriculture and allied sectors to augment and ensure appropriate use of resources.

Veterinary services with the mandate of promoting animal health care, animal welfare, public health and livestock production, play the crucial role of protection of health, improvement in nutrition and economic well-being of citizens.
