The Dairy Board implements cooperative development and governance programmes across the country. The aim is to help create self-reliant, jointly owned, democratically controlled and professionally managed cooperative institutions, responsive to the socio-economic and cultural expectations of their members.
In addition to helping build resilient, self-sustaining Cooperatives, the NDDB is committed to serve its rural community by including Women's Development and Leadership Development Programmes, and encourage fairness and transparency in milk procurement operations as a core/integral part of its activities. Need based consultancy is provided to help evolve strategies to promote and strengthen village based milk procurement systems.
The National Dairy Development Board assists in:
- Institution Building (IB)
- Strengthening Procurement Systems (SPS)
- Enhancing Women Involvement in Cooperatives
- Legal Frameworks of Cooperatives : An Evolution
- Village based Milk Procurement Systems under NDP1
- New Generation Cooperatives leading to Producer Companies
In addition to our client organizations, viz., State cooperative Milk Marketing Federations and Milk Producers' Cooperative Unions, the Cooperative Development and Governance services are available to non-government organizations, producer companies and developmental agencies involved in working with dairy and allied cooperatives and with women's empowerment.
At the request of State Government / Dairy Co-operatives, NDDB undertakes management of co-operatives which need assistance in its operations for a defined period. These are termed as Managed Projects.
