Amul pouch milk price hike by upto Rs 3/litre

Gujarat dairy co-operative Amul has announced a hike of up to Rs 3/litre on fresh milk effectually immediately. Amul last hiked its prices in October by Rs 2 per litre.

“We would like to inform you that the price of Amul pouch milk (all variants) has been revised upwards as under w.e.f. February 2, 2023 night dispatch (February 3, 2023 morning),”

Amul Gold will be Rs 66 per litre, Amul Taaza will be Rs 54 per 1 litre, Amul cow milk Rs 56 per litre and Amul A2 buffalo milk will now cost Rs 70 per litre, it said in a statement on Thursday.

“This price hike is being done due to an increase in the overall cost of operation and production of milk. The cattle feeding cost alone has increased to approximately 20 per cent compared to last year. Considering the rise in input costs, our member unions have also increased farmers’ prices in the range of 8-9 per cent over the previous year,” it had said.

Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary hit out at prime minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah.

“If there is an increase in the price of Amul milk, the common man will be affected. Maybe Modiji and Amit Shahji do not drink milk… but it is necessary for the children of our country to drink milk. The government has made its intention clear by increasing the price of milk.”

The Congress tweeted and explained how it affects the common man. “How will the ₹3 per litre increase in milk prices affect your pocket? If your family consumes two litres of milk per day, you will now have to pay ₹6 more per day.” The opposition party also pointed out a family will pay ₹180 more per month and ₹2,160 more per year.

“Is it ‘Amrit Kaal’ or ‘Recovery Kaal’? Ask yourself this question too,” the party tweeted.
