Ludhiana 08 September 2021-Admission process of undergraduate, post graduate and Ph.D programmes of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana is going on. To get education in veterinary, fisheries and dairy science is becoming popular day by day. Witnessing the importance of this sector, in recent times the Government of India created a new Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying. The Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying (AH&D) and fisheries was bifurcated for creation of a new Department of Fisheries besides Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying. While informing this Dr. Inderjeet Singh, Vice-Chancellor, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana revealed that the government of India is pumping huge investment in different sectors of dairy, animal husbandry and fisheries. Last year Rs 15,000 crore fund was approved by the union cabinet as Animal Husbandry Infra Development Fund. This will create 35 lakhs more employment opportunities.

After getting education from this top university of the country, Veterinary, Fisheries or Dairy graduates can serve at different pockets of government or private organizations or even opt for profitable private practice/entrepreneurship.

There is tremendous scope for a veterinarian to serve abroad. The North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) is a requirement for licensure to practice veterinary medicine in all licensing jurisdictions in the US and Canada. GADVASU is imparting one month training for making students succeed in this examination. GADVASU is also in procedure to tie up with a USA based multi-location veterinary hospital firm who will train/help our graduates to clear examinations of NAVLE and also support for their Visa needs and employment.
