Lack of trained manpower under State Government network is one of the main reason for not achieving the desired result of A.I. coverage.The number Govt AI centers are not sufficient to cover the entire population especially those farmers residing outside the serviceable area of the Govt centers as Artificial Insemination(AI) programme demands 24 hours service accessibility to the AI centers.
So to increase the coverage the only viable alternative is outsourcing of the AI activity in the interior most areas beyond departmental service network. This was achieved by selection of interested unemployed educated youths from the interior area and providing training to them on AI as per GoI guideline and introduce them as Private A.I. workers or Gopal Mitra(GM) to make breeding inputs available at farmer’s doorstep of those 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 and one and a half month hands on training under the nearest veterinary doctor is provided before he/she becomes eligible to practise Private Artificial Insemination.
