The National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) assured the Punjab government on Thursday of its support for the state’s effort to set up 12 more milk plants at an estimated cost of Rs 900 crore in order to help dairy farmers.

There are already 11 milk plants in Punjab, covering 6,000 villages, and the new ones would bring the total to 23, covering 12,000 villages. This would aid in the procurement of an additional 10 lakh litres of milk per day.

“This endeavour will not only supplement farmers’ income but will also lead to another White Revolution in Punjab,” said NDDB Chairman Meenesh Shah after meeting with Punjab’s Minister of Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development, and Fisheries, Kuldip Singh Dhaliwal, in Anand.

“All necessary assistance would be provided by the NDDB. This would also help to solve the problem of crop residue burning.”

Shah stated that the NDDB will collaborate with the state government to secure the necessary financial and technical assistance.
