The organisation was under pressure from the milk unions to increase the price.

Earlier this year, the price of milk and curd was increased after the Centre imposed GST on milk and curd. The BJP government, which came under attack from the Opposition for passing on to the customers the 5% GST on curd, lassi, and buttermilk, partially rolled back the hike.

Farmers have been complaining that the price of milk is cheaper in Karnataka compared to neighbouring states and said that milk production was becoming increasingly financially viable if the farmers do not get higher procurement price which stood at Rs 27 a litre till today.
