While delivering the keynote address at the National Dairy Development Board or NDDB’s webinar on 'Dairy Surveyor - Taking Technology to the Dairy Network' on 15 March 2021, Varsha Joshi, Joint Secretary (Cattle & Dairy Development), Department of Animal Husbandry & Dairying (Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying), Govt of India and Chairman, NDDB said that in line with the Govt of India’s vision of Digital India, NDDB has developed “Dairy Surveyor” - a GIS-enabled android application for the benefit of dairy cooperatives and producers-owned organizations.

Senior officials from NDDB, Jharkhand Milk Federation, MP State Cooperative Dairy Federation Ltd and DRMU, Barauni (Bihar) shared their experiences on features/utility of this app, infrastructural mapping, monitoring & survey and procurement & marketing aspects in the webinar. The webinar linked 132 CEOs/Senior officials from milk federations and unions across India through Google Meet and YouTube.

Joshi conveyed, “Dairy Surveyor application will provide a robust locational database that can be used by the policymakers to formulate or review effective policies & programs related to the dairy sector.” It can capture “real-time” location-based information to strengthen decision-making. The app is capable of geotagging and mapping infrastructure, real-time tracking of field projects, monitoring milk procurement and sale-related activities. It will bring in transparency and also help in saving time, effort and cost.

NDDB is constantly working to ensure information sharing and get a diverse set of experts on digital platforms to delve on developments in the dairy sector.
