Egg Scenario and its Future in Tripura

Introduction:

       Egg in the state is one such item that has got the perennial demands so is economic potentiality. Egg is perennial in demand or requirement because, it is perhaps one such item that is preferred by almost all people (leaving meager percentage) of the state. However, per capita consumption of egg in the state is not up to the mark compare to other state.
       This shortfall in per capita consumption of egg in the state is due to demand and supply situation that is to say that the egg requirement of the state is mostly fulfilled through outside state supply.
     This situation sometimes creates bottlenecks in terms of price escalation on the commodity as the case may be.

Egg availability in the state Tripura:

       At present, egg availability in the state depends on the out side supply of poultry egg from other states. In absence of organized egg producers in the state, dependency on out side state become imminent and it is out side supply that constitutes lion share in terms total eggs marketed in the state.
       In the state, production of egg is not enough due to the fact that there are no visible private player or layer farm owners or people involved in egg production. It is only in the Government farm that certain quantities of egg from the layer or improved breeds are produced but the quantity is less than sufficient to the total requirement of the state.
       In addition, local egg produced from the local hen and duck is also very paltry due to decline in number of local hen and duck in the rural areas.
     It is due to such production variation and its consequent affect on supply that the price of the local egg of hen and duck is excessively high in the market compare to the poultry egg brought from the out side state.

Opportunity Ahead:

       The local egg market is very promising and expected to continue; in every month hundred thousands of poultry eggs are brought here for meeting the local demands whereas, as mentioned local supply is not noteworthy.
       While, in the state, there is very note worthy improvement in case of people venturing in broiler farm but the astonishing fact is; people are yet to plunge in the rearing of layer birds for egg production.
       In case of broiler farm, it is almost in every block level although scale of the farm may not be in economical level but it has reached to the fur flung areas and taken the roots in Tripura. This is only the times before it reaches in the level playing fields in the state.
       Whereas, the story of layer farms in the state is a matter of concern and to be examined carefully. The demands and supply position of egg in the state is favorable for the youth of the state to take a plunge in the egg production for tapping this economic opportunity.
      It would surely benefit the youth of the state in economic improvement through the organized venture in egg production.

Why egg production in the state is economical is presented in simple terms:-

        Egg economy in the state
1 Total population of the state(Approx): 3600000
2 If egg is preferred by 95 per cent(Approx) of the population then the daily egg requirement is: 3420000
3 If per capita(approx) consumption of egg per day is: 342000
4 As per row no-3, monthly egg requirement will be: 10260000
5 As per row no-4, yearly egg requirement will be: 123120000
6 If egg(layer) is sold at the rate of rupees four per egg than the total involvement will be(in rupees): 492480000
        This is only the assumption but in actual it would surely differ and it would be escalated in actual terms. From this illustration, it clearly indicates the good economic scenario which youth of the state can tap.
       The Government is in a drive to increase the egg production in the state and there is also easy access for financial help for such activities in the state. The point is; youth of the state should realize the opportunity and act in to harness this opportunity.
