The National Dairy Project (NDP) aims to increase the productivity of milch animals which will lead to increase in milk production for meeting growing demand for milk, said Union Minister for Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare, Radha Mohan Singh.
 
NDP initiatives are helping farmers to increase production by lowering dietary (Ration) costs, he noted. Singh said that the country has been the world's largest producer of milk for the last two decades and its credit goes to the farmers of the country. Since more than two-thirds of our nation's citizens live in rural areas, therefore, there is a need to make the farmers more prosperous, for which dairy sector is important.
 
Union Agriculture Minister also informed that the NDDB has implemented several major dairy development programs including 'Operation Flood' from its inception in the country.
 
India is at number one in milk production and contributes 19% of the world's total milk production. Dairy farmers' income has increased by 13.79% in the year 2014-17 compared to the year-ago period. Milk production, which was 155.49 million tonnes during 2015-16, is planned to increase it to 200 million tonnes in 2019-20, he added.
