'Delhi Milk Scheme', a public-sector-undertaking, has lost all its relevance for general consumers in Delhi after Union Government set up 'Mother Dairy' to cater to the need of milk and milk-products for citizens of National Capital Region (NCR).
DELHI MILK Scheme (DMS) is now only involved in institutional sale, with its thousands of milk-booths scattered throughout the city. grossly misused as private shops by the licensees in corrupt partnership of DMS personnel.
A look at the DMS booths anywhere in the city can clearly prove that hardly any DMS product is available on these DMS booths. Aspect of corrupt partnership is evident from the fact that DMS once admitted that it did not maintain sale-record of individual DMS milk-booths. It may be that after intervention of Central Information Commission, some institutional sale might have been routed through DMS booths to justify the corrupt angle.
Double spending of public-money should be saved by merging DMS with Mother Dairy by converting earlier DMS booths into Mother Dairy booths permitting to sell only Mother Dairy products. Or else, DMS booths may be abandoned and land may be returned to concerned government agencies.
Shocking revelations on DMS website about declining sale and increasing losses confirm DMS to be a white-elephant requiring immediate merger with Mother Dairy. Merged Mother Dairy should increase its product range especially by items like Khoya which has large complaints of being spurious, presently manufactured and sold only in private sector as cottage-industry product.
