Chief Minister also directed concerned officers to develop a dashboard in coordination with National Informatics Centre to keep track of the mapping, for which first phase of survey has been completed.
Online delivery of milk

As compared to last year in March, this year 40 percent more milk is being processed,” said A Sreenivas, Managing Director, Haryana Dairy Development Cooperative Federation.
