Livestock plays a vital role in the rural economy as it provides livelihood to two-thirds of the rural population in India. It contributes to 4.11% of the country’s GDP and 25.6% of total agriculture GDP. According to the 19th livestock census, the population of India's livestock has declined by 3.33% and population of indigenous cattle has decreased by 8.94%. 

This can be attributed to the poor health infrastructure & Veterinary Hospital network in India.
