Milk-IndiaUnion Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh inaugurated Kalki Bhawan and Narmada Hostel of National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal, Haryana. In his address Minister said that “India stands first on global milk product scenario.

Milk product has been increased from 137.68 million tonne in 2013-14 to 146.31 million tonne in 2014-15. For the first time there is a record enhancement of milk production as 6.3 per cent whereas on international scenario there is only an increment of 2.2 percent enhancement of milk production”.

Singh said that “another important point to ponder is that despite increase in total milk production in the country, milk productivity per animal is far less than the average in developed dairy nations. Therefore, there is a need to focus on implementing technologies which result in enhanced milk production per animal”.
