3. Self employment generation in Dairy Sector by establishing of Hi-Tech Dairy Units.
 
 
Hi-Tech commercial Dairy as a new plan scheme is proposed to be implemented in the State starting from the current year . For the year 08-09, there is a budgetary provision of Rs.750.00 lac out of which a sum of Rs. 150 +150 =300.00 lac has been sanctioned vide Govt. letter No. 3386-AH-4-2008 /8478 Dated 4.7.08 & 3384 - AH-4-2008 /9042 Dated 17.7.08. This provision was made in the Annual Plan of the Department on the basis of the allocation of Rs. 92.16 crores of which Rs. 49.66 crores was for SCSP. But now the Planning Department has revised this allocation and the SCSP component of the department has been reduced to Rs. 20.00 crores as communicated by the Govt. vide memo No. 4213-AH-4-2008/10724 dated 25.8.2008 (Copy enclosed). The provision for this scheme has been revised and now the revised scheme worth of Rs. 600.00 lac is proposed. The scheme in principle stands approved by the Govt. The detail of the scheme is as under:-
It needs no emphasis that India happens to be the goldmine of farm livestock resources. It possesses more than half of the buffalo population of the world with a majority of the recognized breeds. The Indian Dairy Industry with a large number of Dairy Entrepreneurs in rural areas has made a tremendous impact on the agrarian economy of the country. With present production level of 98 million tons milk per annum, India ranks first in the world and 55% of the total milk produced comes from buffaloes. (The world trade in milk and milk products is about US$ 10 billion.) India’s present export earnings from milk and milk products are mere 0.06 percent of global trade. The Agriculture and processed food products have a large scope in the global market. It is expected that through optimal utilization of resource base and the induction of advance technology Indian Dairy Production can scale new heights.
Haryana holds a special place in the field of milk production and it is truly known as the ‘Milk pail’ of the country. 80% of the State milk comes from buffaloes alone. The State is proud to be the home-tract of one of the best buffalo breeds of the world i.e. 'Murrah'. Buffalo has also been recognized to be the animal of the 21st century and thus, systematic improvement of buffaloes for milk production of the country is a foregone conclusion. There is a great demand of this high yielding elite breed not only from within but outside the country as well. Most of the States procure breeding stock from Haryana for upgradation of their low producing buffaloes. The State is quite conscious of conserving, improving and fast multiplying this unique genetic stock of buffaloes by promoting breeding activities in the State.
Milk production in the State is 54.70 lac M.T. out of which 80% is contributed by buffaloes. The per head milk availability in the state is 640 gm per day which is 2nd highest next to Punjab. According to livestock census - 2003, the buffalo population in the state is 60.00 lacs and is increasing annually by 3% where as cattle population 15.00 lacs and decreasing annually by 3%. It directly reflects the suitability and adaptability of buffaloes to the environment of the State.
The State has a vast potential of self employment generation in the sector of Animal Husbandry & Dairying. Establishment of dairy units of 3,5,10.20 milch animals can alone generate substantial employment (Direct or Indirect) wherein loan is provided by the banks & subsidy by Govt. Normally, one person gains full time employment by keeping 2-3 milch animals. Similarly, for unit of 5,10,20 milch animals the other members of the family also gain employment. The State is having a well developed infrastructure of veterinary institutions catering to the needs of the livestock owners providing veterinary services round-the-clock at their doorsteps. The strategic location of the State having proximity to the national capital further gives it an opportunity to upgrade its already existing well-organized milk marketing system. The State is also self-sufficient in fodder production and rich in human resource for providing training to the farmers as well as the field functionaries.
The department holds, at every sub division in the state, regular 11 days dairy trainings for the persons interested in setting up of dairy units. Animal Husbandry is an integral part of Agriculture and next to Agriculture, is the major sector of employment. According to 17th Livestock Census -2003, About 36.00 lac families (Households) are engaged in livestock rearing alongwith agriculture & out of these about 10.00 lacs families are drawing household income from tersary sector as major occupation even than are rearing milch animals or other livestock.

Briefly the major objectives of the scheme are under:-
i) Clean Milk Production being scientifically managed & reared.
ii) Creation of data bank of quality germplasm - step toward formation of breed Associations
iii) More employments -- as a result of shift from 1-2 Milch animals to large commercial dairies.
To boost up the milk production, fodder production and generation of more & more employments in the dairy sector, it is proposed to establish bigger dairies with minimum of 20 or more milch animals.
Commercial banks under Agriculture Finance would finance the commercial dairy units. The need based loan as per proposed project- proposal would be sanctioned by the bank. The model scheme for a 20 milch animals unit ( Details exhibit at Annexure-I ) would require the following amount or need based as demanded by the unit holder :-
(i) Term loan Rs. 8.5 lac
(ii) Working Capital Rs. 2.5 lac
This amount is to be repaid in 7 years in 78 monthly installments with a moratorium period of 6 months.
The scheme is flexible and would be modified as per suitability of the farmer. Regarding rate of interest, the individual bank or banks would provide loan on preferential reduce rate as per advice issued by RBI. Chiefly, the interest rate would be 2% less then the prevailing P.L.R., further 1% less for regular payees and further by 0.5% for women loanees. Further clarified that the financing banks would not charge any processing & other fees from farmers while sanctioning the loan.
The department would assist these dairy units in the following ways:-
i) Providing free trainings to the suitable dairy entrepreneurs.
ii) Sponsoring of loan applications to banks.
iii) 50% Sharing of cost of insurance of dairy animals.
iv) The subsidy @ 15% of the term loan to a maximum of Rs. 1.50 lac to a commercial dairy unit would be provided.
v) Veterinary services at door step of farmers .
vi) Arrangement of marketing of milk through HDDCF etc.
The subsidy on sanction of loan will be released in advance to the financing bank. The farmer will be asked to set up the unit in a period of three months and the health certificate of the milch animals would be produced by the concerned Vety. Surgeon. 50% cost of insurance premium will be born by the Govt. under the scheme for an initial period of 3 yrs. In case the loanee does not set up the commercial unit, the bank will refund the advance subsidy to the department. The department proposes to set up 400 such dairy units during the year 2008-09 in the State for which a sum of Rs. 600 lac will be required under plan budget.
The expenditure involved shall be debited to the budget grant under head: -
