Amul, the leading dairy company in India, has increased milk prices in the Delhi-NCR, Maharashtra and many other regions by Rs 2, reports Hindustan Times.

Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells dairy and dairy products under the Amul brand, had earlier revised the milk prices two years ago.

The price hike came into effect from today (21 May) on all of the six brands of Amul which are being sold in Delhi-NCR, Gujarat, West Bengal, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra and other states.

The new prices for 500 millilitres (ml) of 'Amul Gold' in Ahmedabad, will be Rs 27, 'Amul Shakti' at Rs 25, 'Amul Taza' at Rs 21 and 'Amul Diamond' at Rs 28, a GCMMF statement said.

The GCMMF statement added that there will be no changes in prices of cow milk in Gujarat.

“This increase in milk prices by Rs 2 per litre has happened after a gap of two years with an aim to provide remunerative milk purchase price to our milk producers owing to drop in milk production and increase in cost of production,” GCMMF said, as reported by HT.
