GOVT. SCHEMES/PROGRAMMES :
Union Agriculture Minister had launched the ambitious Dairy
Project named as “National Dairy Plan” Phase-I to increase
the productivity of milch animals and provide more revenues
to India's 70 million small milk producers and upgrade milk
processing plants in cooperatives and private sectors. The
total amount of Rs. 2242 crores (426 Million USD) will be
spent by International Development Association, World
Bank and Govt. of India.
Milk production is growing at 3.3% while consumption is
growing at 5% leaving a gap between demand and supply.
We are sure that with the implementation of NDDB National
Dairy Plan, Govt. would be able to plug the gap between
demand and supply.
Besides NDDB, other departments of the ministry like Animal
Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries are focusing on increasing
the animal population, production and productivity as a
thrust area, offering financial assistance to the organizations
and departments working in dairy sector.
Ministry of Food Processing Industries also has its own
programs targeting to increase the dairy processing and
value added products in the country. In the fast changing
world scenario and increasing competition, there is need to
exploit the available resources to the maximum level and to
use the best technologies, to cope up with the rising
domestic demand for dairy products and to target export
markets to become “ AFood Factory to the World.”
