Pashu Chikitsak Mahasangh Meeting and its participation in the 7th Pan Commonwealth Veterinary Conference at Bangalore from Mar 3-7, 2019

A meeting of the Pashu Chikitsak Mahasangh (PCM) executives was held at KVC Bangalore on Mar 4, 2019 under chairmanship of the President PCM, Dr Chirantan Kadian. The meeting was attended by officers from most states of India.
At the outset, a great sense of satisfaction and gratitude was expressed to the President PCM for his untiring efforts to help fellow veterinarians across the Nation at the time of need. Dr Chirantan’s efforts to get the combined vaccine for HS & FMD introduced were greatly lauded because it was going not only to save time and energy for vets and the para vet staff but also causing 50% lesser pain to the precious livestock thereby increasing their productivity. Ultimately, farmer was the one to be benefitted by the whole process. It was hoped that the scheme will be extended to other states also very soon.
Various issues related to veterinarians across the country were discussed at large. It was observed that in some of the states posts of veterinarians were lying vacant in huge numbers since long causing heavy burden on shoulders of the working vets. Lack of NPA and shortage of the supporting staff were two important issues for several of the other states. Treatment exercised by the unqualified personnel trained for the purpose of AI from NGOs like JK Trust, BAIF, PFA, Friendcoes and also those appointed by the State Livestock Development Boards was considered an important cause of concern because such people were not only playing with lives of the precious livestock but also maligning the profession otherwise since the innocent farmers were not able to differentiate between a veterinarian and a quack. It was also discussed that the Krishi Vikas Kendras run by the State University Faculty should instead be run by the field staff of respective disciplines because the University faculty hardly visits the farmers’ places whereas the field vets work all the time with the farmers. Hence, there is a better communication, cooperation, understanding and knowledge with the field vets to solve their problems. The issue of supply of sub-standard medicines in some of the veterinary hospitals was also raised by some of the participating members.
One of the dire need experienced was of finding ways to make Veterinary Council of India, a functional entity. In the absence of a controlling body like VCI, essential to ensure standards of veterinary education throughout India, the future of the profession was considered in jeopardy. President PCM apprised that because of not so good intentions of some of its selected members, the VCI had been dragged into courts rendering it worthless so much so that for the past many years, even the college admissions has been abandoned by the body, not to think of any checks on quality of the education. It was decided that PCM will take every initiative possible to revitalize the premium body.
One of the other most important topic discussed was that of revival of the Indian Veterinary Association (IVA). Once upon a time, IVA remained a highly revered and strong organization looking after interests and welfare of all veterinarians of the country. However, because of some vested interests of few of the IVA sleuths, the organization went into an oblivion since mid of the 1990es. Since then, neither any need for a general body meeting was considered nor for fresh elections, not to think of giving an account of the funds available with the supreme body. Those in the Executive posts of the IVA are still sticking to their positions constantly for the past more than 25 years inspite of the fact that many of them are now past 85 years of age. PCM has tried time and again to plead and persuade these dons to call general body meeting and conduct fresh elections to give way to the young blood to act and achieve. But to no avail. Therefore, at initiatives of the Tamil Nadu vets, an adhoc body of the IVA was constituted to convene a General Body Meeting of IVA shortly to revive and revitalize the IVA in a fair and democratic manner.
Apart from its meeting, since PCM was one of the co-sponsors of the 7th PCVC, it was a great opportunity for the participating members to meet and interact with a number of the top brass of profession from all over the Globe. Dr SM Johnson Chiang, President, World Veterinary Association; Dr Mark Schipp, President, OIE; Dr Peter Thornbur, President Commonwealth Veterinary Association, Dr Abdul Rehman, past President, Commonwealth Veterinary Association were a few to name from a long list of the foreign delegates whose response to the PCM was highly respectful and receptive.
Dr SN Yalagod, President Karnataka Veterinary Association and his complete team attracted highest appreciations and gratitude from all the participating states for their exquisite stay arrangements for them.


7th Pan Commonwealth Veterinary Conference on 03.03.2019

Haryana becomes the first state to undertake FMD+HS combined vaccination

Haryana becomes the first State of India to undertake FMD+HS (Foot and Mouth Disease + Hemorrhagic Septicaemia) combined vaccination program under FMD CP implemented by the Government of India. A permission letter in this regard was issued by Joint Secretary Ministry of agriculture and Farmers Welfare, GOI on 01 January 2019.

The letter was issued in response to the request made by the Haryana Government in this regard. Haryana Government has been given the permission to carry out vaccination with FMD+HS combined vaccine on Cattle and Buffalo with conditions which include working out a technical protocol in collaboration with ICAR and Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (LUVAS) Hisar, for surveillance and monitoring of the vaccinated population to generate authentic and representative data. State is also advised to test the potency and safety of the vaccine before administration and also monitor the movement of the vaccinated animals outside the State.

Implementation of FMD+HS combined vaccination program in Haryana is the apparent victory for the Pashu Chikitsak Mahasangh (PCM) an apex body representing the Vets from all over the India. PCM under the able leadership of its Chairman Dr Chirantan Kadian was continuously pushing its demand for the use of combined vaccination which as per PCM would not only bring down the overall cost of the FMD CP program but will also improve the Veterinary services being provided by the Veterinary doctors.

PCM has regularly presented its demand at various levels to the GOI and its the personal and scientific logical effort of the Minister of State Agriculture Ministry GOI Krishna Raj which saw the approval for the combined vaccination program in the State of Haryana. PCM is hoping that the successful outcome of the FMD+HS combined vaccination program in Haryana would pave way for the implementation of FMD CP program using FMD+HS combined vaccine throughout the Nation.

PCM demands implementation of combined FMD vaccine throughout the Nation

In a major push for the adoption of combined FMD vaccine through out the country, the Pashu Chikitsak Mahasangh (PCM) an apex national body of the Veterinarians met and submitted a memorandum to the MoS for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Krishna Raj on 17th December. The delegation of Vets comprising Office bearers of various State Veterinary associations led by PCM president Dr Chirantan Kadian met the Minister at Anand Gujarat where she had come to participate in a Workshop organised by NDDB.

Dr Kadian appraised the Minister regarding the work done by PCM. He also thanked the Minister for starting a pilot project on combined FMD vaccination in Haryana following an earlier demand by the PCM. PCM members while interacting with the Minister reiterated the fact that the combined FMD vaccination will not only benefit Vets but would also save the nation lots of money and manpower as in the present scenario Vets are busy through out the year administering vaccination which has a scheduled cycle of four times in a year. The combined vaccine will have to be administered once or twice in a year and Vets can then pert their energy toward better Animal Husbandry Medical services.

PCM also demanded the establishment of a separate Indian Council for Veterinary Research (ICVR) which is presently working under Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR). As per the PCM, establishment of a separate council will facilitate the research in the Veterinary Science and the Animal Husbandry at large. Some members also put forward the suggestion that there should be a separate ministry for Animal Husbandry and Veterinary sciences.

Dr Kadian raised the issue of poor functioning of the Veterinary Council of India (VCI) and the urgent need for revamp of the same as a near non functional VCI is hurting the interests of Vets at the national level. PCM President also requested the Minister to include members of PCM in the important committees whenever they are formed to formulate National policies pertaining to Animal Husbandry and Veterinary services since PCM is the only vibrant body of the Vets of the India at the moment.

Minister Krishna Raj had given a patient hearing to the demands raised by delegates of PCM and thanked Dr Chirantan Kadian for bringing out the concerns of the Vets which are of National importance. She also lauded the efforts of Dr Chirantan Kadian for leading the PCM with purpose and fervour.
