    District / Taluka wise Chilling Centres

Government has fixed the purchase price of milk along with the guarantee of purchasing all the milk produced by the milk producer. Primary co-operative societies are established at the village level while co-operative milk unions are established at district/taluka level. The responsibilities of milk cooperative societies are as follows:

Milk reception is done by the blooming chain of co-operative societies. The management of co-operative milk societies is looked after by the representative elected from the milk producers and that of co-operative milk unions is managed by the representatives elected from various milk societies.
The milk collected by the societies is sent to co-operative dairies or Govt. dairies and from there the milk is dispatched for selling or converting into milk products.

Taluka/district unions accept the milk from private co-op. societies and after processing dispatches to Govt. or co-op. dairies or private sector milk projects. The quality control checks and records of the milk received and dispatched to Govt. or co-op. dairies are expected from taluka or district level unions. The payment is done to the taluka/district union on the basis of Purchase price fixed by the Govt. along with the commission per litre milk to cover the expenses incurred by the taluka/district unions. After covering the expenses incurred by the taluka/district unions, the payment is done to primary milk societies so as to enable the members of primary milk societies to receive the payment against the milk supplied by them.

The Govt. fixes the purchase price of milk on the basis of production cost from time to time and these rates are fixed for two seasons (flush and lean). Flush season is from 1st October to 31st March and lean season from 1st April to 30th September. Generally the purchase rates during flush season are less by Re.1/- and in lean season the price is more by Re.1/-. In the year 2003 to 2004 due to drought condition the purchase rates for both seasons were kept the same and are same till date.

Due to absence of high breed milch animals in the State Artificial insemination/cross breeding is carried out since 25 years, resulting in high milk production gradually.
