JKMPCL gets Rs 3.76 cr under centrally sponsored scheme
TO INSTALL 31 BULK MILK COOLERS (BMCS)
Srinagar, June 26: Centre has sanctioned Rs 3.76 crore to the Jammu and Kashmir Milk Producers’ Co-operative Limited (JKMPCL) under centrally sponsored scheme--Clean Milk Project to improve quality and enhance the production.
“We have received Rs 3.76 crore under ‘Clean Milk Project’ from the central government,” Chairman Dr Muhammad Deen told Greater Kashmir on the sidelines of Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Chesmashahi Milk Plant.
“The project is aimed at strengthening infrastructure for quality and clean milk production”, he said.
Under this project, Dr Deen said 31 Bulk Milk Coolers (BMCs) would be installed at the strategic points on different milk routes ‘to reduce the problem of souring and cuddling’.
The chairman said the farmers will get training to collect milk properly considering cleanliness.
According to him Rs 3.76 Crores project will be finalized next week in a meeting of Technical Monitoring Committee. He said the major share of funds will be utilized for the setting up of cold storages to avoid souring and cuddling.
The co-operative started functioning with the fresh boom seven years ago after Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (under its brand name Amul) started giving it the technical support to maintain the quality control. It has been using the name ‘Snow cap’ and associated more than 300 dairy co-operatives societies with it at different parts of Jammu and Kashmir since then.
