The National Programme for Bovine Breeding and Dairy Development (NPBBDD) has been formulated by merging four on-going schemes of the Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries in the dairy sector.
These are the National Project for Cattle and Buffalo Breeding (NPCBB), Intensive Dairy Development Programme (IDDP), Strengthening Infrastructure for Quality and Clean Milk Production (SIQ and CMP) and assistance to cooperatives.
This has been done to integrate milk production and dairying activities in a scientific and holistic manner for attaining higher levels of milk production and productivity, to meet the increasing demand for milk in the country.
