Milk to get costlier by Re1 in Delhi and NCR

New Delhi: Dairy chain majors Amul and Mother Dairy have increased the prices of milk by rupee one in Delhi and NCR with effect from Sunday, on the back of a rise in the prices of milk procurement.

Mother Dairy has increased the prices of its three variants, whereas Amul has revised the price of double toned milk only.

Double toned milk of Mother Dairy will now be available at Rs19 per litre and toned and bulk vended milk (token milk) would now cost Rs20. Skimmed milk of Mother Dairy will now cost Rs17 a litre.

“Due to the cumulative impact of increase in procurement price of milk and milk commodities, Mother Dairy is compelled to increase the prices of these three milk variants," Mother Dairy said in a statement today.

The prices of these variants have not been revised for the last 22 months.

“The prices of full cream and toned milk in poly packs, increased last year, will however remain unchanged," Mother Dairy said.

The country’s largest dairy cooperative, Amul, has also hiked the price of its double toned milk by rupee one to Rs19 a litre in Delhi and National Capital Region, the company officials said.

However, prices of other milk variants of Amul would remain unchanged, the officials said.
