NABARD will provide a credit flow of Rs 400 crore to Punjab's dairy sector during the next three years to boost milk production and promote dairy farming.
Stating this, a spokesman of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) today said three districts-- Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Ropar-- had been selected for modernisation and capacity building in the dairy sector.
"NABARD is in the process of redefining the concept of dairy sector as commercial activity rather than calling it as allied agriculture activity," he said.
While milking machines would be provided to dairy farmers, milk coolers will be given to both farmers and societies, under the project.
