Managing directors of all 13 dairies of Gujarat met at the GCMMF headquarters in Anand on Friday, Jul 2 and decided on the hike.
"We have decided to hike the milk prices by Re 1 and Rs 2 per litre in Delhi from Jul 4 and in Gujarat it would be from the second week of Jul," Chief General Manager GCMMF R S Sodhi said.
"In Gujarat, there would be an increase in price of Rs 2 per litre for Amul Gold and Shakti, while Amul Tazaa and Slim and Trim would become dearer by Re 1 per litre," he added.
"The major reason behind the hike in milk prices is the governmnet's decision to raise fuel prices," said Soudhi.
With a network of 13 district co-operative milk producing unions, GCMMF is India's largest food products marketing organisation with an daily average milk collection of 8.4 million liters.
