Dr. Verghese Kurien created an incredible white revolution through cooperatives. The cow dung revolution is now starting in Anand where the white revolution started. Rabari-dung of cattle dung will be procured by cooperative societies like milk. The women will run the congregation, which will build their home-made gas plant using German technology. Women will get an income of Rs 3,000 per month from savings of Rs 300 gas and Rs 300 per month.
It would cost around Rs 25,000, but with the help, a female cattle rancher would have to invest Rs 5,000 to set up a gas plant. After release of gas, slurry rubber will be sold for 0.75 paise to 2 rupees per liter. Thus income from milk, gas and rubber will be generated. With this Rabri companies will make fertilizer for sale and sell it to farmers. India has new technology.
