Emergency medical service for animals

Animal Husbandry Minister Revu Naik Belamagi said here on Friday that the scheme would be introduced on a pilot basis in five districts of Hyderabad-Karnataka. The Minister said the objective of the scheme was to check deaths of animals for want of timely treatment.

Belamagi said the Government is ready to fill more than 800 vacancies of veterinary doctors in the State, but there are no enough candidates. “A total of 822 students have been studying in the four veterinary colleges in the State and appointments will be made from out them,” he said. The government has also decided to introduce a two-year diploma course in veterinary science to tackle shortage of veterinary doctors.

A sum of Rs eight lakh would be released to each gram panchayat for construction of library buildings. It had been decided to construct 100 such buildings, he added.
