To encourage investment in the poultry sector by the entrepreneurs, the J&K government is all set to extend insurance cover to the poultry farms in the state.

The decision was taken here at a high-level meeting chaired by principal secretary animal, sheep and fisheries department Asghar Hassan Samoon, according to an official spokesperson.

The maiden initiative of insurance cover to the poultry sector initiated by the principal secretary was the long pending demand of the poultry entrepreneurs.

"I am hopeful that with insurance cover, poultry entrepreneurs will feel encouraged to expand their business and increase the production of their units," Samoon said.

While saying that outbreaks in the poultry farms are very rare, Samoon said that insurance cover is a win- win situation for insurance companies as well as entrepreneurs.

Saying that no major outbreak has been reported in the poultry sector due to regular vaccination dosage by animal husbandry department, Samoon stressed on the insurance companies to charge minimum premium from the poultry unit holders which will act as protection against any eventuality.
