DIMAPUR, APR 7 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/7/2020 12:48:09 PM IST

To ensure availability of livestock health care services and food commodities of livestock origin identified as essential requirement, the state government has included the services of the department of animal husbandry & veterinary (AH&V) and notified that all related facilities including production units and dairy processing plants shall remain functional during the lockdown.

In a notification, the state chief secretary Temjen Toy stated that all veterinary hospitals, veterinary dispensaries, veterinary health centres, laboratories, disease diagnostics & quarantine check posts including private veterinary clinics and pharmacies within the jurisdiction of Nagaland state would remain functional during the lock down period. 

The notification stated that all livestock and poultry farming operations both under government and private sector would be continued during the lock down period. Further, animal feed plants both under government and private sector including transportation/inter-state movement of animal feed and fodder would remain operational.

All dairy processing plants would also remain operational ensuring procurement from producer farmers and smooth supply of milk and milk products to consumers.

All concerned functionaries and personnel have, therefore, been requested to discharge their responsibility with the strictest adherence to personal hygiene/workplace hygiene and safety as per guideline prescribed by WHO and the regulations of the State Government during the COVID-19 lockdown period.

Except in the dispensation of their duties, the government has advised the functionaries to strictly desist from misuse of movement other than in their assigned area of work/route which may invite appropriate action under the present advisory in force.
