The Karnataka Poultry Farmers’ and Breeders’ Association (KPFBA) recently announced that the Agriculture Skill Council of India (ASCI), part of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, is collaborating with the KPFBA for expanding skill development in the poultry agriculture ecosystem in Karnataka.

Satender Arya, chief executive officer, ASCI, stated, “The poultry sector is getting more and more organised by the day with modern equipment and practices, requiring skills at the ground level.”

“KPFBA as an organisation has been in the forefront of imparting skills to the poultry farmers as well as those in the organised poultry sector. By doing this, a new poultry ecosystem is coming in place in the country, which is good for the growth of the sector, per se,” he added.

Akhilesh Babu, president, KPFBA, thanked ASCI for the collaboration, stating, “The association is continuously working on improving the efficiencies in the poultry sector.”

“The sector has come a long way, with state-of-the-art equipment, handling and other practices. As an association, we are keen on best practices in the sector, and it goes a long way in adding to the economic development of the country,” he added.

“With this collaboration, KPFBA will open up avenues for employees in their member companies to get assessed and certified in alignment with the government’s certification norms, will have a voice in the National Occupational Standards which is updated by ASCI, and will have access to consultancy services to enhance competencies of manpower,” said Babu.

The poultry sector (both breeders and commercial farms) are run by a semi-skilled or illiterate workforce and there is constant short supply of workforce. The collaboration would help increase skilled manpower and also be in line with modern practices.
