Leading milk supplier Mother Dairy has increased milk prices in Delhi-NCR and other cities by Rs 2 per litre with effect from Sunday. The prices were earlier hiked in July last year. 

The prices will rise in Delhi-NCR, Haryana, Western Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand among other places.

Markets beyond these select regions will be revised in a phased manner. Mother Dairy Milk is available in over 100 cities across the country. “The company has been experiencing a surge in varied input costs which have increased multifold,” it said.

The procurement prices (amount paid to farmers) have alone firmed up by about 8-9 per cent since July 2021. The other costs have also gone up.

“The surge in farm prices is only being partially passed on to the consumers, with an effective revision of only 4 per cent, which is lower than the increase witnessed in the farm prices and overall food inflation, thereby securing the interests of both the stakeholders,” Mother Dairy said.
