With tremendous multi-times increase in demand of Khoya especially in festive-seasons, sale of harmful synthetic Khoya is at large in Delhi and other parts of the country. Notable aspect is that normal milk-supply cannot even partially meet actual demand for production of khoya especially in festive season around Deepawali thus proving that most of sweets are made from harmful synthetic khoya! Already Mother Dairy has started marketing khoya, but its fat-content should be reduced to make it more hygienic, practical to use and economical as well. Reducing fat-content from khoya by Mother Dairy will achieve items like ghee and butter as valuable by-products. Union and state governments should allow sale of khoya only in organised sector.
Giants like including ‘Amul’, ‘Saras’ ‘Sudha’ etc in public and co-operative sector in different states can arrange manufacture and sale of pure Khoya as packaged commodity to ensure sufficient supply of certified pure Khoya by recognised milk-processing units to save consumers from use of preparations made from synthetic Khoya. Packaged milk-items should also include cow-milk which is used as medicinal and traditional food for many persons.
Government-policy should be to sell milk and all milk-products as packaged commodity in urban areas to ensure their availability in pure form, and also to overcome problems faced by people on removing milk-dairies, cow and buffaloes out of city area because of environmental reasons.
