As many as 29 Mobile Veterinary Units( MUVs) and centralised call centers are going to be launched in Thiruvananthpuram on 5th January 2023 in a remarkable act for the benefit of the livestock farmers in Kerala.
This is, to begin with, the project which will be launched by Shri Parshottam Rupala, Union Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying in Thiruvananthpuram tomorrow. All these 29 Mobile Veterinary Units will become functional in God’s own land.
As per the project guidelines accessed by JharkhandStateNews.com, these MVUs will be operated through a centralised call center with a uniform Helpline No. 1962. It will receive calls from livestock rearers/animal owners and Veterinarians will prioritize all cases on the basis of emergency nature and will transmit them to the nearest MVU for attending at the farmer’s doorstep.
MVUs will provide diagnosis treatment, vaccination, artificial insemination, minor surgical interventions, audio-visual aids and extension services to farmers/animal owners at their doorstep in far-flung areas.
MVUs will also act as a one-stop Centre for solutions to veterinary issues and dissemination of information to the remotest areas of the country.
