The real opportunity lies in its value addition through selective breeding and genetic manipulations resulting in development of new attractive colour strains and ornamental characters.

NFDB Schemes

The National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB) is mandated to play a critical role in this direction. An amount of Rs.457.62 crores has been earmarked for development of intensive aquaculture in ponds and the proposed activities are expected to generate substantial investments resulting in an annual additional production of 26.5 lakh tones of fish. The present guidelines on intensive aquaculture in ponds and tanks cover a wide gamut of activities ranging from fish seed and table fish production to human resource development. The objectives of the guidelines are to bring in more clarity and objectivity, thus facilitating the implementing agencies in preparation and  submission of suitable proposals in tune with the criterion evolved by the NFDB for providing assistance for development of intensive aquaculture in the country.

MPEDA Schemes

The selected beneficiaries will be trained on various aspects of ornamental fish breeding and successful completion of training will be one of the criteria for providing the financial assistance.Grde-3 units are larger individual multi-species ornamental fish breeding units breeding high value ornamental fishes. The maximum assistance will be Rs. 7.5 lakhs or 50 % of the capital cost which ever is less.Grade-2 units are small-scale ornamental fish breeding units, which can be setup as individual units. The maximum assistance will be Rs. 2 lakhs or 50 % of thecapital cost which ever is less.Grade-1 units are micro scale units set up in a cluster comprising a minimum of 10 units.

Lifestyle in India

Font Size


 

The Government of India promotes socialist-inspired rural policies and extensive protectionism in Indian villages. The attempt to save the Indian village from pervasive corruption is consistent and totally market-based, since the agricultural surplus is an advantage to the increase in population. Village life in India is simple. The village folk not only dress simply, but also display simplicity in their meals and work life. Indian villages are major contributors to the agricultural products like wheat, rice, various lentils and cereals and also cash crops like cotton, oilseed, jute, tea, coffee and sugarcane. The typical village home also houses cattle, sheep, goats and poultry.

ViMost homes are eco-friendly units, with courtyards, cattle enclosures, and thatched kitchen areas. Their community life spurs to action during annual fairs and pilgrimages. While men in most Indian villages sport light, cotton shirts and loose trousers or dhotis, the women's attire comprises the typical sari or long skirts and blouses. Handcrafted jewelry like bangles, anklets, nose rings and earrings highlight every dress code, urban as well as rural. Festivities of Diwali and Holi bring the villagers together and it is not uncommon to see even non-Hindus have a whale of a time with the colored water and special delicacies.

Villagers display a deep loyalty to the village deity and the village itself. Village feuds are not uncommon. Certain facilities are common to the village, like ponds and tanks, meadows, temples, cremation grounds, trees and wasteland. Traditionally, Indian villages follow the panchayat or headman system, which offers equal opportunity to women and men to be a part of and contribute to the village administration.

Village Life in India:

The Government of India promotes socialist-inspired rural policies and extensive protectionism in Indian villages. The attempt to save the Indian village from pervasive corruption is consistent and totally market-based, since the agricultural surplus is an advantage to the increase in population. Village life in India is simple. The village folk not only dress simply, but also display simplicity in their meals and work life. Indian villages are major contributors to the agricultural products like wheat, rice, various lentils and cereals and also cash crops like cotton, oilseed, jute, tea, coffee and sugarcane. The typical village home also houses cattle, sheep, goats and poultry.

Village life revolves around tilling and reaping and providing the raw material for allied industries. In spite of regular migration of youth to cities and townships, the population directly involved in agriculture remains constant and dedicated to the cause. Villagers begin the day with baths in the makeshift baths and eat only after worship at home and at the village temple. The rest of the day spreads over work in the fields and/or the creation of ingenious crafts. Their meals comprise of hand baked breads and lentil. The day culminates in either richly earned rest or sharing of thoughts in the village quadrangle.
