https://aicrp.icar.gov.in/poultry/ 

The Directorate coordinates and monitors the network project of All India Coordinated Project on Poultry Breeding, being implemented in a total of 12 centres located in different Agricultural/Veterinary Universities and ICAR institutes.  The main objectives of the project were development of location specific chicken varieties, conservation, improvement, characterization and application of local native, elite layer and broiler germplasm; development of package of practices for village poultry and entrepreneurships in rural, tribal and backyard areas. In addition, KVASU, Mannuthy and AAU, Anand centres are to maintain two elite layer germplasm (IWN and IWP). KVAFSU, Bangalore, GADVASU, Ludhiana, OUAT, Bhubaneswar and ICAR-CARI, Izatnagar are to maintain four elite broiler germplasm (PB-1, PB-2, CSML and CSFL). Two pedigreed random bred control populations (one for layer and the other for broiler) were evaluated and reproduced at the Directorate. Samples of hatching eggs from these populations are being sent to different centres of AICRP on Poultry Breeding to measure the genetic progress. During the year 2018-19, a total of 8,07,869 chicken germplasm was distributed to the farmers from different centres with a total revenue generation of Rs. 223.47 lakhs.
