Rabbit as meat producing animal is new in India, particularly in NEH Region. Hence an effort was made to highlight the potentiality of rabbit farming and its techno feasibility in the agro climatic condition of NEH Region, acceptability of rabbit meat and other products by the people of this region and economic viability based on the data generated in the rabbit research farm of this institute and in the field level for the last ten years. It revealed that rabbit farming is highly remunerative, ecofriendly sustainable enterprise to pave the way for self-employment.
