As per report of Medical Council of India, one adult person should consume half egg and minimum 15 gm of meat in a day, but at present the people of our state consume on an average 30 eggs in a year and 6 gm meat in a day. It means the people of our state consume much lower than the minimum percentage.
The main reason is that the requirements of our state cannot meet by local productions and ultimately we are purchasing from outside the state and causing the rate is high and the common people unable to buy these eggs and meat in high rate, so it is necessary to produce these materials in our state locally.
Considering these points in mind Chilarai Krishi Bikash Samity demand to establish some Poultry Villages in Dhubri district of Assam in a cluster basis involving women SHGs .They have experience in poultry and duck farming and they will be engaged in poultry and duck farming for production of poultry meat and eggs to fulfill the demand of this district as well as rest of the state. Since the state still imports poultry meat and eggs from outside the state and in make the state loss of crores of rupees and these products can easily be produced locally, so this project can serve better for employment of the rural women and make the district self-sufficient in this products.
