|The West Bengal government has decided to probe allegations of malpractice by some private dairies, including Amul. |
|"We have received complaints against private dairies, including Amul. Once the complaints were identified, legal action would be taken," Animal Resources Development department minister Noore Alam Chowdhury told the state assembly. |
He, however, did not mention the nature of malpractices or irregularities. Replying to a question, the minister said the state government has taken steps to revamp ailing state-owned dairies like Central Dairy and Haringhata Dairy to meet the growing demand for milk.
