Most civic bodies yet to implement Goa government’s ABC scheme

So far, just 43 village panchayats, seven municipalities and the corporation of the city of Panaji (CCP) have applied for implementation of the animal birth control (ABC) programme. However, most civic bodies have not applied for the programme as they do not have suitable NGOs locally to implement the scheme, minister for animal husbandry and veterinary services Nilkanth Halarnkar said on Thursday, in a reply tabled in the assembly.
