"A survey has found that 80 per cent of the 186 NLUP beneficiaries who opted for dairy farming have witnessed success.
Their sales of milk to the MULCO have increased by 800 litres per day," Lal Thanhawla said today, while inaugurating NLUP Implementing Board (NIB) conference hall here today. He chaired the 11th meeting of NLUP implementing board that followed the inaugural function.
The meeting reviewed the implementation of various trades under phase I and II of NLUP.
Lal Thanhawla expressed triumph over the successful and smooth implementation of his government's flagship project during the last three years, and expressed hopes that it will ultimately transform the economy of the state within a short time.
Vowing that the NLUP should not stop half-way, he urged the department officials to take renewed efforts.
Official sources said 45139 families had been covered in the first phase and another 45000 families have been selected for the phase II. Rs 234.82 crore, Rs 234 crore and Rs 370 crore have been allocated for the project for 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 respectively.
These exclude Rs 40 crore from RKVY. It was also reported that 143 beneficiaries under phase I had failed to utilise the fund they have received.
