Telangana’s sheep distribution scheme

Telangana sheep distribution scheme was launched to support the state’s traditional shepherd community (Kurna and Yadavas) and to strengthen the rural economy. All individuals from shepherd community above the age of 18 will be eligible for this scheme. Under this scheme, the beneficiaries will be given a unit of animals comprising 20 sheep and a ram. Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao directed the immediate resumption of the first phase, which was paused mid-way because of the pandemic. The second phase will commence from FY2021-22.
