This is the first hike in milk prices by Amul this year. Last year, Amul hiked the milk prices in March, August and in October, considering the rise in input costs.
Earlier in a statement, Amul said the increase of Rs 2 per litre translates into a 4 percent increase in the maximum retail price (MRP), which is lower than average food inflation. The statement reads, This price hike is being implemented due to an increase in the overall cost of operation and production of milk. The cattle feeding cost alone has increased by approximately 20 percent compared to last year.
