t is not just petrol or diesel prices but also milk prices that will be hiked. Mother Dairy Milk will increase the price by Rs.2 per litre in the NCR effective Saturday.

Full cream milk will be dearer by Rs 2 a litre, while other variants will be costlier by Re 1 a litre. One litre of full cream milk (poly pack) will now cost Rs 39, toned milk (poly pack) Rs 30, token milk Rs 28, double toned Rs 26 and skimmed milk Rs 22.

The price hike was not planned and was even stopped since a year but the increasing prices of Petrol, Diesel and packing materials had resulted in the rise of Milk too. Companies like Amul and Kwality Dairy had already increased their prices in April but Mother Dairy did not. But now it is a situation that they were forced to increase prices.
