The revised tariffs for Amul Milk have been increased by Rs. 3 per litre and will take effect on February 3rd.

The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) have increased the Amul milk prices by 3 Rupees per litre across all variations, starting as of February 3rd. The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) recently released a statement saying, “We would like to tell you that the price of Amul pouch milk (all varieties) has been raised upwards as under w.e.f. February 2, 2023 night dispatch (February 3, 2023 morning).”

The rates of Amul milk were raised shortly after by the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation. The revised prices for Amul Taaza are as follows: Amul Taaza 500 ml will be now available at Rs 27; Amul Taaza at Rs 54 per litre; Amul Taaza at Rs 108 for two litres; Amul Taaza 6 litre at Rs 324; Amul Taaza 180 ml at Rs 10; Amul Gold 500 ml at Rs 33; Amul Gold at Rs 66 per litre; Amul Gold 6 litre at Rs 396; Amul Cow Milk 500 ml at Rs 28; Amul Cow Milk at Rs 56 per litre; Amul A2 Buffalo Milk 500 ml at Rs 35; Amul A2 Buffalo Milk at Rs 70 per litre; Amul A2 Buffalo Milk 6 litre at Rs 420.

The revision rates are intended for other markets, including Mumbai, Kolkata, and Delhi, as stated by Jayen Mehta, the managing director, he also added that the increase will not be applicable in the state of Gujarat. Price increases for Amul Gold (full cream) and buffalo milk were previously implemented in all states, with the exception of Gujarat, in October of last year.

The middle class was hopeful that the inflation wouldn’t affect them following the Union Budget 2023, but it was immediately followed by this. The price increases are due to the dairy industry’s ongoing spike in raw milk expenses, which has grown by around Rs. 3 per kilogramme just in the last two months alone due to a multifold increase in various input costs. The situation has worsened as a result of rising fodder prices and insufficient rainfall in some northern states which led to the price hike.
