Bihar aims to emulate Amul model
Inspired by the success of Gujarat’s Amul which started the dairy movement in the country, Bihar has drawn up a five-year roadmap to become a major milk-producing state. Aiming to procure 44 lakh litre of milk daily, the dairy roadmap forms part of comprehensive agriculture policy drawn up by the state for 2012-17. “Bihar is working hard to successfully follow the Amul model of dairy,” Chief Secretary Ashok Kumar Sinha said. He said Bihar now holds the ninth position in the list of milk-producing states, Tamil Nadu being at the top.
