KATHMANDU: Milk and dairy products worth Rs two billion have been damaged so far during the ongoing lockdown in the country.

The Dairy Association Nepal has shared that dairy product of about Rs five billion is in stock.

The Association general secretary Pralhad Dahal said the supply of milk and dairy products has reduced by 75 percent in the urban centers since the lockdown was imposed to stem the spread of the Coronavirus.

The Association held a video conference today with the chairs of the association chapters in seven states in the country.

The meeting has urged the government to adopt measures not to let the milk and dairy products go waste, manage zero-interest loan, waive VAT and taxes in the dairy business and for the farmers.

Dahal complained that the government’s decision of exempting the house rent was not implemented in practice. He also urged the federal and state governments to include dairy products like ghee in relief package to be provided by the government.
