Milma informed that not only the price of milk but also related products will be increased. Milma had earlier informed that the price increase will be done without much difficulty for the public and the farmers. The government says that the price increase is to give relief to the dairy farmers.
Meanwhile, Milma Chairman KS Mani responded that 83.75 percent (Rs. 5.02) of the increased price will be given to the farmers. Although the increase in price will create more financial burden on the people, the increase in the price of fodder and other commodities has put the dairy farmers in crisis. This should be taken into account, he said.
Dairy farmers and groups will get 5.75 percent each on the new price hike. 3.50 per cent for unions and 0.75 per cent towards welfare fund allocation. 0.5 percent will be given for plastic waste management. Milma claims that the increase has been limited to six rupees considering the interest of the customers. Meanwhile, when huge losses were incurred, the rate of fodder was increased by 12%. Milma milk which comes in half liter packets is acceptable. The current market price of toned milk which is available in a liter packet is Rs 23. Smart Milk, which Milma claims is suitable for the elderly as it is low in fat, is priced at Rs 22. Milma’s rich milk with 4.5 percent fat, suitable for making stews and sweet treats for weddings and other celebrations, is priced at Rs 26. These three packets will increase by three rupees each. Before this, Milma had increased the milk price in 2019. It was increased by Rs 4 per liter that day.

At the same time, there is a complaint that dairy farmers are not getting the benefits announced by the government. The dairy farmers have demanded that the benefits should be provided directly in case of double price of fodder. The minister has informed that the delayed incentive of dairy farmers will be paid this month itself. Also, it has been decided to pay till March next year, the minister said. After increasing the price of milk, it was decided to give an incentive of four rupees per liter as a relief to the dairy farmers. The incentive has been stopped since July. But the minister informed that the incentive till December will be given together.
