From your information, I got to know that she is obese. She needs to reduce approximately 6 kg. It is too much weight for her height but no worry she can reduce it by diet and some exercises.
She needs very low calorie diet of about 1200 kilocalories a day. Rice intake has to be as low as 50 g as well as 50 g whole wheat. Carbohydrate group not more than 150 g. Only brown rice, brown breads, and more fiber containing products like whole grains to be taken. Take more vegetables from gourd family and 300 g fruits have to be taken. Reduce sugar intake to minimum 1 teaspoon per day or have less sweets.

As I can check her present weight is 61 kg and BMI is 27. So, she has to reduce 6 kg approximately, hence she can be 55 kg on an average. Yes, she can have 150 mL double toned (D&T) milk while having breakfast and 150 mL luke warm milk at bedtime.
Do not go for cow's milk or similar. Either D&T or skimmed milk can be had. Even she can have up to 100 g/day of milk products like paneer, curd and yogurts, which is good for her but without sugar.
Meal plans and hormonal profile.Probable diagnosis:
Diet and exercises.Preventive measures:
High calorie foods.
