Milk and other dairy products are getting costlier, along with everything else, amid rising inflation. Dairy products had already seen a price hike with the addition of new GST rates earlier in the year. Post that, Mother Dairy, Amul, Nandini Dairy, and Milma announced further hikes. The total daily domestic consumption of milk in India stands at around 203 million metric tonnes. The price hikes are expected to affect millions of Indians. Let’s take a look at some of the dairies that have hiked their rates recently.
