India will need 200 million tonnes of milk by 2021-22 as against 137.68 million tonnes of 2013-14. To meet the rapidly growing demand for milk, the productivity of the milch animals and the total milk production have to be increased. And hence the  National Dairy Plan, a scientifically planned multi-state initiative. Being implemented in 14 states in the first phase, the National Dairy Plan is largely supported by International Development Association (IDA) of World Bank and implemented by National Dairy Development Board. Refer or download documents on National Dairy Plan at the ‘Resources’ section of the website:
