2 Poultry farming in the state of Karnataka is at par with global standards in Productivity & performance. More than farmers are involved in poultry farming. There are three different types of poultry farming 1.Breeder Farms – a unit or place to rear & maintain poultry parent stock 2.Layer Farms - a unit or place to rear & maintain commercial egg laying birds 3.Broiler Farm – a unit or place to rear & maintain commercial meat type birds 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net2

3 There are two major issues which are effecting poultry farming – Pricing: Farmers are not getting remunerative price for their produce, due to issues like over production & higher input costs. – Exports: since our farmers are producing table eggs and poultry meat of global standard, the poultry farming has to get certain supports from the State/Central Government, by which our farmers can become competitive globally 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net3

4 Our Requests To gear up poultry farming to be competitive there are certain irritants which has to be addressed. 1)Agricultural Status 2)Custodians have to be the Officials of Animal Husbandry Department 3)Easy access to procure Land for Poultry activities 4)Exemption from APMC Act & Cess 5)Reduction in VAT 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net4

5 1) Agricultural Status Karnataka Land Reform act 1961, defines Poultry farming as an agricultural activity. But, Gram Panchayats & local bodies are insisting poultry farms to procure licenses, pay building tax, pay development tax & payment of other taxes, though licenses are not required for conducting agricultural activity. We request the Government of Karnataka to issue a GO in this regard. Agriculture status will attract priority lending from bankers, which will reduce the cost of fund. And will attract lot of incentives which are available for agricultural activities. 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net5

6 2) Exemption from APMC Act & Cess Poultry Farmers, who buy maize for making poultry feed, should be fully exempted from APMC act & cess, Poultry farming community are the direct consumers of Maize. 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net6

7 3) Easy access to procure Land for Poultry activities Poultry Farmers should be allowed to buy Agricultural land for running poultry farms. Such poultry farmers should be exempted from 79 A & 79 B of land reform act of Such acts (79 A & 79 B of KLR Act) are not present in the states of Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu & Andhra Pradesh. 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net7

8 4) Custodians have to be the Officials of Animal Husbandry Department Poultry activity is rural based. We request the government to make village veterinary officers of Animal Husbandry Departments to be the custodians, overseeing good animal husbandry practices in their respective circles. Such veterinary officers having Poultry knowledge should only be authorized to issue notices if need arises. 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net8

9 5) Reduction in VAT Poultry equipments in Karnataka attracts 14.5% VAT. States like Maharashtra & Andhra Pradesh & Telangana has 5% VAT. We request Karnataka State government to reduce VAT from 14.5% to 5%, which will help the Karnataka poultry farmers to adopt technology, equipment resulting in hygienic farming practices. Government has been encouraging processing of agri products to increase shelf life & deliver hygienic food for its citizen. When poultry farming is processing live birds creating value, delivering packaged hygienic food products it attracting VAT. This VAT is counter productive and discouraging hygienic processing. We request the state government to withdraw VAT on processed & packaged chicken products. 2/13/2015www.poultrykarnataka.net9
