Milma hikes milk price by Rs 4 per litre

The price of Milma milk will go up by Rs 4 per litre from September 21. The price hike will be applicable for all types of milk supplied by Milma.

The decision was made in a meeting chaired by Diary Development minister K. Raju on Friday.

Milma had demanded a hike of upto Rs 7 which was shot down by the government. The dairy farmers will now get 83.75 percent of the price, thus giving them an additional Rs 3.35.

Milma was planning to offer 80 percent to farmers after the rate revision. However, the government decided on the higher percent which will benefit the dairy farmers.
