About the Scheme

This scheme was launched by the chief minister targeting the Shepherd community of Andhra Pradesh. The scheme aims to provide subsidies to the shepherd community on buying and selling of animals. Thus, this scheme will protect the interests of the poor community. The beneficiaries of the scheme include the Golla and Kuruma communities. The Gollas is a Telugu-speaking pastoral community, who is populated in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu. They represent 13.4% of the total population of Andhra Pradesh state. Gollas are traditionally cowherds, but they engage in both sheep/goat and cattle pastoralism, in that they either herd exclusively sheep, or a mixed herd of sheep and goats, or cattle.

The scheme has been put forward by the National Cooperative Development Corporation. The shepherds will be able to buy 20 sheep and 1 goat with the help of financial assistance.
