The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh has announced the launch of Nandani Krishak Samridhi Yojana in August 2023. Under this scheme, the Yogi government will provide 25 indigenous improved breeds of cows to the farmers and cattle rearers of the state for opening dairies.

Under this scheme, the cost of setting up a unit of 25 milch cows was estimated at Rs 62,50,000/-. In such a situation, the Yogi government will give a grant of 50% of the total expenditure i.e., a maximum of Rs 31,25,000/- to the beneficiary.

Nandani Krishak Samridhi Yojana has been announced by the Uttar Pradesh government under the Nand Baba Milk Mission to increase the income of the farmers of the state, make them self-reliant, and increase their inclination towards indigenous breeds of cows.

Along with this, the Progressive Animal Husbandry Promotion Scheme and Chief Minister Swadeshi Cow Promotion Scheme will also be started under the Nand Baba Milk Mission.

To accelerate milk production in the state, through Nandani Krishak Samridhi Yojana or Nandani Krishak Bima Yojana, the income of farmers will be increased by providing 25 cows of indigenous breeds like Gir from Gujarat, Sahiwal from Punjab, and Tharpark from Rajasthan.

Farmers who are permanent residents of Uttar Pradesh will be provided micro-loans and good breeds of cows from the cooperative society under this scheme. The cattle rearer will be given a good rate of milk. This will also promote indigenous breeds and this scheme will prove to be a milestone in economically strengthening the farmers and cattle rearers through artificial insemination programs and bringing white revolution in the field of milk production.
