On January 4, the animal husbandry, veterinary, and dairy development (AHV&DD) department organized a 'special camp to distribute kisan credit cards (KCC) to animal husbandry and fisheries farmers' in Namsai district. 

Apart from livestock farmers from the Lekang circle, the camp was attended by the NABARD's LDM and DDM, the DVO, and the branch manager of the Punjab National Bank (PNB). 

According to DVO Dr. Keshab Sarmah, the AHV&DD department's objective is to assist KCCs to all eligible animal husbandry, dairy, and fishery farmers in the district, as well as to guarantee that they get institutional credit. 

"Farmers can obtain a credit limit of Rs.1.6 lakh on the KCC without submitting any collateral.  They have kept their target of providing credit card facilities to around 500 livestock farmers in Namsai," he said.

He also presented a brief on eligible farmers and the documents required to avail the facility. 

According to NABARD DDM Kamal Roy, animal husbandry, dairy, and fisheries activities contribute significantly to farmer income, particularly for small and marginal farmers and women, in addition to supplying cheap and nutritious food to a large number of people. 

"It is critical to provide reverence to small and marginal farmers and women involved in animal husbandry activities in the state, as well as meet their institutional credit requirements for working capital needs through KCC, in order to tap the sector's potential and increase employment generation and income," he said. 

SBI LDM B Kaman informed that in order to sanction a loan, the bank needed proposals as well as other important documents. He, however, added that “the earlier defaulters will not get the KCC benefits.” 

PNB branch manager Dangsam Songthing also spoke.
