On Tuesday (10 January), Arunachal Pradesh signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) at Anand in Gujarat to kick-start a ‘white revolution’ in the state.
As per the MoU signed in presence of Chief Minister Pema Khandu, NDDB would conduct a survey related to milk production and consumption and identify areas of intervention in Arunachal Pradesh, an official release said.
Based on the survey, NDDB would prepare a five-year dairy development plan and provide technical support to the state to set up a milk procurement system.
NDDB would also provide technical support in terms of establishment of dairy infrastructure, cattle feed and mineral mixture plant besides providing training and capacity building of farmers, dairy technicians and others.
Mineral mapping of the state would also be done to find out the status of mineral deficiency in soil and based on that NDDB would formulate composition of area specific mineral mixture, the release said.
