Leading milk supplier Amul has decided to increase prices by Rs. 2 per litre, effective Wednesday across the Delhi-NCR market. Full-cream milk will now cost Rs. 42, toned Rs. 32 and double-toned Rs. 28 per litre.
"The prices have been hiked after 13 months as input costs have increased," RS Sodhi, managing director of Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation, which sells milk under the Amul brand, told HT.
"The rise is the result of general inflation and increase in the milk procurement price paid to farmers."
A spokesperson of Mother Dairy, Amul's close competitor, said, "Mother Dairy is still reviewing the situation and a decision on an increase is yet to be taken."
