M. Jothilakshmi, D. Thirunavukkarasu and N.K. Sudeepkumar

Abstract:
Structural changes (namely Liberalization, privatization and globalization) initiated by the central and state governments from 1990s onwards started to restructure the government services in all sectors. In the pre globalization era the major service providers are government owned state level animal husbandry departments and the quasi government organization namely dairy cooperatives. In the last 20 years various donor agencies, ministries, state and central government bureaucracies have been working on bringing out policy changes at state and central. These policies changes are focusing on minimizing the role of public sector. The major recent policies that are driving the livestock sector services privatization are National livestock policy draft, state level policies, Milk and milk products order 1992 (MMPO 1992) and Multi state cooperative act are discussed in this topic. These policy and acts are having direct and immediate impacts on public livestock service delivery system. On the other hand the public owned livestock service institutions run on shortage of human resources. In addition to the above, state an animal husbandry department suffers from budgetary difficulties. These policies, acts and withdrawal of public sector are having direct and immediate impacts on public livestock service delivery system and are replacing the older institutions with newer ones. This study attempts understand the emerging institutional changes in livestock sector.
