What are the major problems of India's Dairy sector? Do you agree that unorganized dairy sector is reaping the benefits of favorable consumption dynamics"? Opine.

Hint Answer: Key problems are logistics, low productivity and yield. Problem of logistics does allow to procure milk beyond a 200 kilometers radius, because its perishable. Further, the cold storage and supply chain infrastructure bottlenecks are ubiquitous in entire farm sector in India.
I don’t agree with the view that the unorganized dairy sector is reaping the benefits of favorable consumption dynamics. The demand for milk products is increasing but still 80% of the milk sector is in unorganized sector. This fraction is yet to participate in the modern processing infrastructure.
