INTRODUCTION

In India, the veterinary services have been funded, managed and delivered by the public sector .But in recent past the government’s financial resources for the provision of veterinary services have not kept pace with the increased livestock population (Carney, 1998) and production resulting in detoriation of quality services by the public sector agencies (Anteneh, 1984; dehaan and Nissen, 1980). Hence privatisation of veterinary services is considered as one strategy that could be implemented to improve the quality of the services and to decrease the financial and administrative burden on scarce public resources.
