Sudha milk to cost Rs 2-3 more per litre in Bihar, Jharkhand

Consumers will have to pay extra Rs 2-3 per litre for their daily requirement of milk from Sudha Dairy outlets as the price has been increased.  The new rates will be effective across Bihar and Jharkhand from Friday morning.

Post the increase in price, Sudha Gold (the full cream variant) and cow milk will be costlier by Rs 3. While Gold will cost Rs 48, the cow milk lovers will have to pay Rs 40, instead of the current rate of Rs 37. The prices of other three variants including standard (green pack), toned and double toned have also increased by Rs 2.

The rates for the three popular variants will be Rs 41, 37 and 34 respectively. These account for almost 70 per cent of the supplies. The development comes after Comfed, a supreme federation of 10,000 cooperative societies, decided to sanction milk producers’ demand for a hike in procurement prices.

“It has been decided to raise the price of milk sourced from primary producers by a minimum of Rs 1.50 to Rs 3.50, depending on the quality,” said Sudhir Kumar Singh, MD, Patna Dairy Project.

Defending the hike, Comfed MD Seema Tripathi said the input costs have gone up, as well as the impact of GST on the packaging. One has to keep the interest of poor farmers, she said.
