  4. 4. 3 2- POULTRY SECTOR The investment in poultry sector stands at approximately Rs.60 billion in Pakistan. The sector produced 434,782 metric tons of broiler meat and 3860 million of eggs in the year 2003-04. Poultry is by far the largest consumer of agro-residue and by products, such as oilseed meals, wheat bran, rice polishing, broken rice, corn gluten meal, guar meal, fish meal, animal’s by- product meal etc. During 2003-04, about 2.8 million ton of poultry feed was produced, comprising about 1.2 million tons of these residues and by- products; thus providing extremely valuable contribution towards reduction in the cost of principal food items, like edible oils, atta, rice, fish, meat, sugar, glucose, etc. Thus poultry not only made possible their availability at lower prices to the consumers, but also enabled the agro industries to pay a higher price for the crops which served as an incentive to produce more. In addition to the agro residue utilization, poultry sector, during 2003-04, consumed about 1 million ton of coarse grains like maize, sorghum, broken rice, rice tips, etc. The increase in production has directly benefitted the small agriculture farmers in the rural areas of Pakistan. Poultry, during 2003-04, contributed 1.3% to the GDP and has provided approx. 0.525 million jobs to skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled workers even in the far flung areas; thereby reducing the influx of the rural population into urban areas to some extent in search of jobs. In addition, since it can be started with low investment, it is an important means of self- employment and provides an opportunity to women to be self-employed. Thus poultry is playing a significant role in poverty alleviation by improving rural economy. The greatest challenge facing the poultry sector is to establish appropriate distribution of products. Currently, 95% of broilers are marketed in live form through a network of dealers. Poultry processing plants can play an important role in improving marketing channels. However, competing with the unorganized wet market which has no financial, plant maintenance, depreciation, electricity, distribution costs and is free of all taxes would be an uphill task. The history of poultry processing in Pakistan is riddled with failures. Likewise, egg grading, packing and distribution stations will have to play a role for deeper market penetration. The technologies shall highly rewarding particularly during excess production. Poultry producers in Pakistan can achieve better results by paying more attention to nutrition, management and control of diseases by adopting improved technologies. Application of modern technology and establishing integration and new channels of marketing will ensure the long-term viability and profitability of the poultry sector in Pakistan on reducing the additional cost of inefficiency. 3) ISSUES RELATING TO THE PUNJAB GOVERNMENT i) Union Council/District Council/Municipality Taxes on Poultry Products. Union, Tehsil and Zila Councils of Lahore, Kasur, Sheikhupura etc have imposed irrational fee upon poultry sector. Exorbitant license fee to the tune of Rs.20,000/- has been levied on “per poultry farm” basis and not on ‘per
  5. 5. Company/firm” basis. This means that a company that has established 5/6 farms located at different places is being made to pay more than a lac of rupees in the form of license fee. 4 For building a poultry shed a new fee for the approval of the building plan for the same has been levied at the rate of Rs.3-5 per square ft. One large poultry farm unit has poultry shed area of about 1,25,000 square ft, which normally comprises of 5 to 6 sheds, therefore, fee levied on per farm unit comes to a staggering amount of Rs.400,000/-. The shed measuring 12,000 sq. ft. can be used for raising 12,000 broilers or 6000 layers. Thus an extra fee of Rs.3.5-6.5 is being charged against a broiler/layer. Lahore Zila Council has further enhanced License fee and categorized the farm as A, B and C according to the capacity. Now a farmer has to pay an extra amount ranging from Rs.5000/- to 20000/-. Union/Tehsil/Zila Councils may need to be restrained from burdening the poultry sector with heavy and indiscriminate taxation. Some local Governments have started levying property tax on poultry Farms which needs to be stopped. The Chairman PPA (Punjab Zone) may like to explain the latest position to the Board. ii) Poultry Producer’s markets in Punjab. a) It is proposed to set up Poultry Producer’s markets in Punjab. In case of establishment of Producer’s markets, live broiler will be available at Rs.5/- per kg and table eggs Rs.2-3 per dozen lesser than the prevailing market rates in other shops. In the previous meetings, it was decided that DCOs in all District shall be approached by PPA to establish producer’s markets in all the Districts. In a meeting of Punjab Prices & Supplies Board, the issue of Poultry Producer’s market was discussed in detail. Zila Nazim, Lahore agreed in principle to provide space at different spots of Lahore for establishment of Poultry Producers Markets, which will serve as a model for other Districts. b) The Chairman, PPA has also made a representation to the Honourable Chief Minister, Punjab for allotment of a 4 Kanal Plot for establishment of its Offices. The PPA has requested for the provision of plot either at Trade Centre Johar Town or at the site of PRTC Depot, Ferozepur Road, Lahore. The Chairman PPA is may to apprise the house of the latest position. iii) Field Poultry Disease Diagnostic & Research Laboratories in Punjab. Although Devolution Plan would have facilitated the public in many ways, but the poultry farmers have been adversely affected in this system. The poultry disease diagnostic and research field activities have been squeezed to few places. The poultry disease diagnostic and research laboratories which were essential components of the then Project Director/Assistant Project Director, Poultry Production Offices under Poultry Research Institute, Rawalpindi are no more there. Rather those have been replaced by the District Livestock activities. In view of the importance of laboratory disease diagnostic and research work required it is proposed that well equipped poultry disease diagnostic laboratories at different locations keeping in view the poultry population strength be established and inline qualified staff be deputed to run these laboratories.
  6. 6. 5 4- ISSUES RELATING TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT i) Soft loaning Facilities for Disease Diagnostic Laboratories/Poultry Farming. In order to bring about an efficiency in productivity, environmentally controlled houses would be necessary to save the flocks from adversaries of extreme weather conditions and diseases. Automatic feeding system is to be deployed for feed savings and watering system for hygiene and sanitation to prevent water contamination. The capital cost for the additional proposed technologies has been worked out as Rs.65.21 billion, which would be required during the next 5-year period. Since the investment for modernized expansion is huge. State Bank of Pakistan/Commercial Bank may be advised to provide soft loan liberally to the poultry sector. Normally, banks demand urban properties as security, notwithstanding whether the farm is in rural area and the sponsor, being a resident of rural area, is unable to provide urban security. A lien on poultry farm is usually considered as only an additional security and not a primary security, eventhough the loan amount could be satiated from the value of the farm. It is recommended that the project/farm itself be taken as a tangible security. Other Conditions of loan need to be revised as under: a) Equity Debt ratio. = 30 : 70 b) Repayment period. = 10 years The PPA demanded that loaning facilities (Rs.3.0 to 4.0 lac) from ZTBL etc be extended to poultry farmers to serve as working capital for purchase of feed, chicks and medicines so that poultry farmers, who have closed their farms may again start farming activity. Project Loaning has been stopped by ZTBL which may be started for capital formation. SMEDA Bank and Askari Commercial Bank also may be requested to consider provision of loans for poultry farming. It is further proposed that PPA should have collaboration with SMEDA for establishment of new poultry establishments. The matter is placed before the house for discussion. ii) Electricity Tariff. The PPA expressed the concern that WAPDA is charging commercial tariff from the poultry farmers on consumption of electricity on poultry farms. They demanded that industrial tariff be applied to the poultry farming operations so that the cost of production be kept low. According to WAPDA notification dated 7th May, 1997, industries (except poultry farms, hatcheries and breeding farms) receiving electric supply under tariff B-1 have to pay only 3% of their total electric consumption at general supply tariff A-II (commercial) while industries receiving electric supply under tariff B-II have to pay only 1% of total electric consumption at general electric supply A-II, singling out poultry industry to pay 10% of its total electricity consumption without any reasons. PPA informed the house that case is under consideration with NEPRA. The PPA has made a representation on a number of times to WAPDA Authorities and even the President of Pakistan.
  7. 7. 6 The Chairman PPA is requested to give his viewpoint on the issue. iii) Refund of Part Air-Freight against Exports Items having a total export of less than $10 million are given a refund of freight for which poultry also qualifies. The procedure is cumbersome and almost negates the provision apart from being time-consuming and involving unaccounted costs. It is recommended that State Bank of Pakistan may fix time frame in this regard. vi) Duty free Import of Corn & Sorghum Since the coarse grain production is not keeping pace with its increased demand, it has become a serious constraint for expansion of poultry sector. In order to increase the availability, even though duty free imports would cost higher than the indigenous Maize and Sorghum, it is recommended that the same may be allowed to be imported at ‘ZERO’ rate of import duty to ensure availability as and when required. vii) Duty free Import of Soyabean Meal. The soyabean meal is not being locally produced, at present 10% import duty is adding to the cost of feed by Rs.120-220 per ton. Feed being 60% - 80% of inputs in production of chicken and eggs, adversely affects its economics and the export competitiveness. Soyabean meal being an essential raw material, it is requested that it may be allowed to be imported at ‘ZERO’ rate of import duty to bring down the price of chicken/eggs in the country. The representative of Agri. Deptt., Pak Oil Seed Development Board and Chairman PPA is requested to apprise the Board. 5) ANY OTHER ISSUE
