Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government has been planning to equip Ksheerasree portal for dispersing incentives to dairy farmers in the state. The portal has been rolled out for integrating all dairy farmers in the state under one roof and incentive disbursal mechanism will be included soon.
At present, around two lakh farmers are providing milk for 3,600 milk cooperative societies across the state. The plan is to make them register with the portal. A special drive will be conducted from August 15 to August 20 for the same.
Meanwhile, other dairy farmers, who are not associated with cooperatives, can also register in the portal.
The registrations can also be done through dairy development department offices and even milk cooperative societies.
Both physical and online registrations can be done. https://ksheerasree.kerala.gov.in/ is the portal for registration.
Photo, copy of bank passbook, Aadhaar number and ration card number are required for the registration.
A farmer will get smart IDs once the registration is completed.
Apart from incentives, farmers can avail subsidies and allowances through the portal.
Minister for Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development J Chinchu Rani informed that the allowances of MILMA and related departments will be disbursed through the portal in future.
