Animal husbandry Infrastructure fund may ignite White revolution 2.0

Mr R S Sodhi MD Amul , is confident that recently announced Animal husbandry fund of Rs 15000 crore may begin white revolution 2.0 in the country. He appreciated the efforts of each and every one in the dairy supply chain as corona warriors. In the recently announced stimulus package for farmers, he is happy to have dairy farmers also included. Secondly the working capital support to cooperatives as they are procuring 15-35 % more milk is another area which he appreciated as government has already conceded to this demand from cooperatives. Haldi , Tulsi and Ginger Doodh have been the innovative beverages which Amul launched during the covid era. As per Mr Sodhi ‘s estimate the new fund of Rs 15000 crores will be able to add a processing capacity of 5 crores per liter over and above the current capacity of 11 crores lpd . This capacity would give an incremental livelihood to 30 lakhs rural families.
