dharna at jind plant milk payment dairynews7x7

Operators of co-operative societies on Thursday went on an indefinite strike seeking release of payment of milk supplied to a milk plant, sitting on a dharna outside the main gate of Vita plant here.
Nearly 2.5 lakh litre of milk is supplied to the plant from villages of Jind, Hisar and Fatehabad on a daily basis, according to officials.

Cooperative societies chairman Sushil Kumar said around 7,000 societies supply milk to the plant but the payment has not been released for the last two months.“Payment is to be made within 10 days but they are yet to do so of the last six cycles. The operators will be forced to shut down the plant if the money is not given at the earliest. Around Rs 80 crore is to be paid,” he added. He said they would, however, continue to supply milk on humanitarian grounds.

Narender Singh, chief executive officer of the plant, told TOI, “We have not received our dues of Rs 143 crore from anganwadi and mid-day meal officials. We will release the payment of operators once we get the amount from the two.”
