Milk collection centres opened in JandK's Udhampur to boost dairy sector

With an aim to boost the dairy sector in the state, Jammu and Kashmir Milk Producers Co-operative Limited has opened milk collection centres in several villages of Udhampur district. The mission is in collaboration with JandK State Rural Livelihoods Mission 'Umeed'. Milk producers deposit their milk in collection centre and after a month they receive their dues. Due to this initiative, producers don't need to travel long distances to sell their product. It also gives the facility of an organised market to producers where they are less likely to be exploited. This opportunity aims at changing the socio-economic condition of the locals.
