Poultry industry is one of the fastest growing agro industries. Poultry being the quickest and easiest source of animal protein for human consumption has occupied a leading role among agricultural industries in many parts of the world. Since, not only it supplies cheap protein source, but it also provides job to millions. The main objectives of poultry farming earlier were to improve body weight and feed efficiency. Modern poultry farming has to take care of other parameters like low fat deposition, leg problems, metabolic diseases and protein content. Sustainable live stocks must also be produced at minimal cost and in shortest possible time. Broilers are selected for enhanced growth rate but problem like increased fat deposition in abdominal cavity is common. In India, several studies have been carried out for the impact of poultry farming in the economy of rural and urban area. This present review is a current scenario of poultry farming and its impact on Indian society.
