Milk price hiked by Rs 2 a litre across state

Consumers from south Karnataka have to pay Rs 2 more for a litre of Nandini milk from Saturday and Re 1 more for litre of milk in north or coastal Karnataka.

As per the new price chart, a litre of milk will cost Rs. 35 in Bengaluru, Mandya, Mysuru, Kolar, Tumakuru, Hassan and Shivamogga, up from Rs. 33. The northern districts that already have a higher price, due to operational costs, will see a hike of only Rs. 1, and the milk will cost in the range of Rs. 35 to Rs. 37.

In a statement, M.T. Kulkarni, Director, Marketing, KMF, has defended the move arguing that even after the revision, Nandini milk prices will remain the lowest in the country and also lowest compared to other private milk brands in the State. While a litre of milk costs Rs. 40 in Gujarat, Kerala, Telangana, and Mumbai, it costs Rs. 42 a litre in Delhi.
