Gujarat Man Invents ‘Milk ATM’ Which Allows Farmers To Sell Milk At Rightful Price Without Any Middleman!

Gussar Nilesh, a 28-Year-Old young man has developed Milk ATM which frees farmer from middleman and dairy people to sell milk at their own price and not according to dairy’s rules.


The milk ATM gives users three options to dispense milk — biometric fingerprinting, username and password or through a prepaid card. The first version of the machine accepted only currency notes of Rs 20, Rs 50 and Rs 100 denominations to dispense milk.

Gussar, a farmer of Khirdhar village, had first assembled the milk ATM for his own use a year ago. Since then, he has sold over 30 machines in Kutch, Devboomi-Dwarka, Jamnagar, Porbandar and outside Gujarat in Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Tamil Nadu.


“I wanted to eliminate the middlemen that came between a farmer and the end customer. When I used to sell milk at a nearby dairy I was not getting competitive rates and that is why I developed this machine,” Gussar a class XI dropout told a leading tabloid.

“Farmers can recover the cost of the machine within a year. That is why farmers having more than three buffaloes or cows prefer this machine,” claimed Nilesh.


“Now, I have modified the milk ATM and made a cashless version where a customer does not have to insert cash. The machine works by registering customers first and using their fingerprint to dispense a fixed amount of milk. Customers can also opt for the username and password system or a radio frequency prepaid card. A customer has to wave the card at a mentioned area on the machine following which prefixed quantity of milk will be dispensed,” he said.

Gussar has assembled five such cashless machines and dispatched it to his clients in Tamil Nadu, Orissa, and Rajasthan. “The machines are on the way and within few days they will start using it,” he added. The cost of the machine ranges from Rs 75,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh based on the milk storage capacity which is between 50 litre and 250 litre. Besides refrigeration, the milk ATMs have battery backup in case of power failure.


We appreciate his efforts to help farmers of our country.
