The hike in milk prices shall come into effect from Monday, he said.
A similar hike was effected by the dairy major in Mumbai on April 11. Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) which markets its products under brand 'Amul' had already increased prices at almost the same levels in its home state of Gujarat on April 10.
Citing rising cost of production as the major reason behind the hike, Sodhi said expense on milk production has gone up for farmers and GCMMF has also hiked the procurement price.
GCMMF supplies nearly 20 lakh litres of milk per day in Delhi and NCR region. It is the second largest milk supplier in the region, after Mother Dairy.
It had raised milk prices at similar levels in August last year.
