Subsidy sought for all dairy farmers

Special Correspondent

Bangalore: The Karnataka State Dairy Association has demanded that the subsidy of Rs. 2 announced for dairy farmers in the budget be given simultaneously to those who supply milk to private dairies and to those who supply to cooperative societies.

Speaking to presspersons here on Friday, association president Dinesh R. Pai said that restricting subsidy to cooperative farmers would benefit only those in Bangalore Rural, Bangalore Urban, Kolar, Mandya, Hassan and Tumkur districts where majority of milk was procured by unions of the Karnataka Milk Federation.

This would deny subsidy to a large number of unorganised farmers in poorer districts, he said.

Committee

Mr. Pai said that the high-power committee constituted to look into the issue of dairy subsidy should evolve a mechanism for extending subsidy to all milk producers.

The association said that the allocation of Rs. 130 crore made for this subsidy was inadequate.
