India was a milk deficient country, but with the initiative by Dr. Verghese Kurien, 'Operation Flood' led our country to be the largest milk producer in the entire world. This also helped in doubling the milk available per person, along with an increased milk output four times within 30 years.
Why focus on Dairy Development?
Dairy farming is an extremely important economic activity, especially in light of reducing land holding size and overdependence of farming on rainfall for irrigation. Despite many initiatives by various central and state government instruments, the organized dairy sector has been able to procure only up to 30 % of the total milk surplus in the country and the rest is handled by unorganized players. The dairy value chain is infested with petty middlemen in the absence of organized players to procure the surplus milk, and farmers are exploited at every stage of the dairy value chain.
