The number of Government AI centers are not sufficient to cover the entire population especially those farmers residing outside the serviceable area of these centers. On the other hand, Artificial Insemination (AI) programme demands 24-hour service accessibility to AI centers.
To increase the coverage, the veterinary department is outsourcing AI activity to interested unemployed educated youths from the interior area after training them on AI as per GoI guideline. They are introduced as Private A.I. workers or Gopal Mitras to make breeding inputs available at farmer’s doorstep of all areas.
Selection of the worker based on his eligibility criteria is done and a free-of-cost institutional training is provided for two and a half months in departmental traning centres followed by one and a half month hands-on training under the nearest veterinary doctor before he/she becomes eligible to practise Private AI.
There are no fees.
Proof of Educational Qualification and his biodata.
Four months training is provided before he/she can be a A.I. Worker
Application to be made in plain paper and submitted to the training cell, ALDA through respective District Veterinary Officers.
As of now this is NOT an online service
