Abstract:

Poverty is not only lack of income it is also a social phenomenon in which a section of a society unable to access the basic necessaries of the life. Even with implementation of poverty alleviation programme by government of India, the level of poverty has not decreased up to the mark in India. Hence in order to reduce poverty and to achieve the overall sustainable development in dairy sector, we study the poverty reduction among dairy and non-dairy farmers for This we have collected data from 120 dairy sample respondent and 60 non-dairy sample respondents from urban, transition and rural at North and South transect. Analysis was done by using poverty indicators (expenditure and standard of living) compare results with poverty line recommended by experts based that we classified into Above poverty line (APL) and below poverty line (BPL) in both dairy and non-dairy respondents. Results of the analysis revealed that raising dairy animals brought vast improvements to their lives, high scores on most of the indicators suggest that dairy sample households have better conditions than those of non-dairy sample households. Majority of the sample respondent fall under the Rs.2000-4000 expenditure category as they were small and marginal farmers so their spending was less in both dairy and non-dairy sample respondents but income was more in dairy sample respondents this shows income earned from dairy activity was more than non-dairy activity. Hence in dairy, farmers were able to get out of poverty and got improved their livelihood through small-scale dairy farming.
