Govt has already reached a consensus in a meeting at the top level to give Rs 5 per litre as incentive to milk farmers. The finance department has also sanctioned the proposal. It would be brought in the cabinet meeting, likely before the model code of conduct comes in place for the Lok Sabha elections.
The Dugdh Sangh in Madhya Pradesh purchases 10 lakh litres of milk from farmers every day through cooperative societies. Minister of state (independent charge) for animal husbandry and dairy, Lakhan Patel said, the proposal to give Rs 5 per litre as incentive to milk farmers is into consideration and a decision would be taken soon.

Chief minister asked to prepare a roadmap for collective participation of milk federations and milk unions of MP and Gujarat regarding milk collection, quality control, processing, marketing, capacity building, training, human resources, welfare schemes focused on dairy farmers to strengthen the interests of milk producers and the cooperative system.
