The West Bengal Government has decided to take over the Bengal unit of Mother Dairy and re-brand it as a government enterprise.

According to a decision by the State Cabinet, the enterprise will be re-branded as Bengal Dairy and run as a "state-owned enterprise.” All Mother Diary employees will be considered as State government employees.

“State Cabinet decides that Mother Dairy, which was earlier a project, will become a Govt Enterprise, the name will be changed to Bengal Dairy,” the party said on Twitter.

Mother Dairy was being run in the State as a part of the “Operation Flood” project taken up the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) in the 1970s.

While over the years, various State governments moved out of the project and started having their own set-ups; West Bengal continued with the “Mother Dairy” brand and the project.
