Government to announce 30% subsidy to milk farmers, co-ops in bid to go solar

The largest chunk of India’s milk business runs on a co-operative business model, which is essentially a collectivised model of dairy farming where producers and milk processors are stakeholders. In the first phase, the milk sector’s power consumption from conventional sources—mainly grid electricity and diesel—will come down by up to 25%.
The government is planning to shift the country’s entire milk sector to solar energy—from farmers onward to processors—through an upfront subsidy of 30%. A policy, in the works, will be announced soon, Dilip Rath, the chairman of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), told HT on Wednesday.(AFP/ Representative Image)
