Why is the price of milk in Bangalore so low?
A government plan is the reason behind the low price of milk in Bangalore. In fact, due to a scheme, the residents of Bangalore are getting a kind of subsidy in the prices of milk. According to the news of the Indian Express, it started about 14 years ago. In September 2008, Yeddyurappa’s government introduced a scheme of Rs 2 per liter incentive for milk producers to supply milk to KMF-affiliated dairies. In May 2013, the Congress government increased this amount to Rs 5 per liter. At the same time, in November, the BJP government increased this amount to Rs 6 per liter. According to the news, with this scheme, the purchase of milk has increased manifold and has even exceeded the demand. KMF is the second largest dairy in the country. The problem was that as procurement increased, neither the infrastructure of KMF improved nor the marketing network could establish its roots outside the state. According to the data, in 2021-22, KMF procured about 82 lakh kg of milk every day. Whereas its daily sales were less than 50 lakh liters. This is the reason why KMF is providing milk at the cheapest rates in the country and is not increasing the prices to save the demand from falling further.
