Poultry Venture Capital Fund (Subsidy) Scheme – Operational Guidelines V

This article is part of a series I am writing on a Poultry Venture Capital (Subsidy) scheme. In this series I will provide operation guidelines including basic introduction, objectives, eligibility, project cost and subsidy, funding pattern, sanctions, time limit etc.


Refinance Assistance from NABARD

NABARD would provide refinance assistance to commercial banks, RRBs, SCBs SCARDBs and other such eligible institutions. Quantum and rate of interest on refinance will be as decided by NABARD from time to time. 

Adjustment of subsidy

  • The capital subsidy will be back ended with minimum lock-in period of 3 years.
  • The capital subsidy should be refunded one year after the account becoming NPA and remaining NPA as on date.
  • The capital subsidy will be adjusted against the last few installments of the bank loan.
  • The capital subsidy admissible under the scheme will be kept in the “Subsidy Reserve Fund Account (Borrower-wise) in the books of the financing bank. No interest will be paid on this amount by the bank. In view of this, for the purposes of charging interest on the loan component, the subsidy amount should be excluded. The balance lying to the credit of the “
    Subsidy Reserve Fund Account” will not form part of Demand and Time Liabilities for calculation of CRR and SLR.


  • Joint Monitoring Committee (JMC) consisting of representatives of NABARD, concerned banks and State Secretaries-in-charge of Animal Husbandry and Dairying under chairmanship of Joint Secretary (P&F) , Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries (DAHD&F), and Government of India (GoI) will review implementation of the scheme at regular intervals.
  • At the State level, the scheme shall be monitored by State level Committee (SLC), constituted for monitoring central sector animal husbandry schemes being implemented by NABARD.
  • The participating banks should conduct periodic inspections of the units and give a feedback to the SLC on a consolidated basis.
  • The units set up under the scheme will be field monitored on a sample basis by NABARD and major observations will be put up to JMC for discussion.



The discretion to modify the unit cost is vested with an Empowered Committee under the Chairmanship of Secretary, DAHD&F, and GoI.


Other Conditions

  • The participating banks will adhere to the norms of appraising the projects regarding technical feasibility and commercial/financial viability.
