Chandigarh, August 2

The state government has implemented various schemes to bring out farmers from the traditional crop cycle and increase their income through allied occupations.

Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa said the government has introduced a new scheme wherein 3 per cent discount would be given on interest rate for setting up units of milk/ milk products, meat, cattle feed and silage units. He said this scheme would continue for three years for which Rs 15 crore had been reserved by the Central Government.

He said due to change in eating habits of new generation, demand for various types of cheese, yoghurt, condensed milk, ice cream and health enhancing products had increased instead of pure ghee and powder making factories.

He directed officials to start an awareness campaign in this regard.
