“ಶಾಲಾ ಮಕ್ಕಳಿಗೆ ಉಚಿತ ಹಾಲು” “KSHEERA BHAGYA”, -the innovative and prestigious program of distributing milk to school and Anganwadi children by the Karnataka Government was launched by Karnataka Milk Federation in association with Lower and Higher Education Department, Women & Child Department of Karnataka State on 1st August 2013. The Karnataka Government is proud that via “Ksheera Bhagya”, milk is being provided to 1.04 crore school children studying in Anganwadi to class 10. With record milk production of 63 lakh litres a day and expected to touch 70 lakh litres soon, “Ksheera Bhagya” is a huge success and helps farmers and also our children to get good nutrition at school. Our Government started giving Rs. 4 as an incentive to dairy farmers for a litre. This resulted in a huge increase in milk production. Before this scheme, in 2012-13, our milk production was just 35 lakh litres a day. KMF(Nandini) to expand to Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh: Now with the extra milk, KMF plans to set up Nandini parlors in Hyderabad, Chennai and other places in TN and AP. KMF is the largest milk co-operative in South India today with more than Rs 10,000 crore per annum in revenues and the target is to be the largest in India.
