The funds for this unit has been released under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana. As many as five acres of land has been purchased near Manachanahalli. This unit produces around 12 tonnes of fodder daily and helps milk producers.

Addressing a news conference here, Mymul chairman, C Omprakash said that a proposal has been submitted to the State government to bifurcate Mymul and setting up a separate unit for Chamarajanagar district.

The Mymul had no objection if the government agrees for the same. The Government should release ` two crore grants for the establishment of the new milk union and about 20 acres of land was required for this purpose.

The local elected representatives should put pressure on the CM to clear the proposal at the earliest.

He said Steps are taken for opening additional procurement centres in all the taluks. The milk union would provide subsidy to milk producers for the purchase of a variety of fodder seeds under various schemes of the union government.

On complaints of excess commission being collected from the consumers by the agents, he said that action would be taken against such erring agents, if he receives the complaints.

The Milk union had been giving scholarship to the children of milk producers to help them to pursue higher education and also implemented insurance cover for the milk producers.
