Dr. Ramesh Chand, Member, NITI Aayog, Government of India, New Delhi visited Amul Dairy, Anand on July 3rd 2017. He was received by Dr. K. Rathnam, MD, Amul Dairy & Shri. R.S. Sodhi, MD, GCMMF. He was briefed the functioning of Amul before taking for a plant visit. He was amazed seeing the tremendous work done at Amul for the upliftment of farmers. He praised the contribution of Amul towards women empowerment.
Amul is the most impressive example of power of cooperative. India ows its White Revolution to Amul. Its contribution in empowering women, landless and small farmers is recognized worldwide. I consider it as epitome of farmers transformation through institution of cooperatives. India needs replication of this success story in all other states and segments of Agriculture and Horticulture. I wish Amul to achieve even more height.
