The Indian dairy industry holds great significance in the country's agricultural sector, making a substantial contribution to the economy, livelihoods, and nutrition of millions. India is a leader in milk production across the globe. This industry has played a pivotal role in India's rapid and self-sustained development, becoming a vital pillar of the rural economy. The Indian dairy sector is governed by the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), which aims to empower producers, promote modern management practices, combat exploitation, and create employment opportunities. Dairy farming has become a lifeline for numerous rural households, benefiting small and marginal farmers, landless laborers, and women, thus driving rural development and poverty reduction. The Government of India (GoI), through the NDDB's guidance, has implemented favorable schemes such as the Rashtriya Gokul Mission and the National Program for Dairy Development (NPDD). These initiatives focus on enhancing the cattle population genetically, conserving indigenous breeds, strengthening infrastructure, promoting high-quality milk production, and effective marketing through state implementing agencies and cooperative dairy federations.
