Price of Nandini Milk to be Increased by Rs 3 Per Litre From August 1: Read More

The consumer price of Nandini brand milk being sold by the Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) is all set to go up by ₹ 3 a litre from August 1, as the government has given its consent for the rise at a meeting on Friday.

A formal notification regarding the increase in sale prices would be issued after a clearance from the State Cabinet. The meeting on Friday was attended by representatives of KMF, presidents and directors of district milk co-operatives and senior officials and convened by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

The district milk co-operatives and KMF had sought an increase of ₹ 5 a litre on selling price of milk. The Chief Minister has permitted an increase of ₹ 3 a litre and instructed that the full financial benefit of the hike in selling prices should be passed on to milk farmers.

It may be noted that the consumer prices of milk had been last increased in November 2022 when a hike of ₹ 3 per litre had been effected by the KMF. However, the then Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had intervened and pegged the hike at ₹ 2 a litre.
