By this, they can easily opt for loans to buy the sheep and yield better results from farming.
However, NCDC is planning to raise the subsidy level from 20% to 30%for the help of the shepherds. Considering the present situation, the government is planning to come up with some changes for the betterment of the shepherds.

Therefore, the CM of the state is giving his best efforts to launch the scheme soon for the betterment of the shepherds.
