It is important for all stakeholders to review this policy of providing milk subsidy to dairy farmers. The policy is doing more bad than good for the farmers as well as dairy cooperatives. It has become a negative spiral. The more subsidy you give , the more milk you get. Excess milk has not demand at market today so more stocks of smp and butter. No support is available to fund the stocks so more stocks lead to further reduction of milk price to set off the holding costs.
