Karachi Residents Face PKR 20 Per Liter Increase in Milk Prices

Karachi: Dairy farmers and wholesalers have convinced the Karachi Commissioner to approve an increase in milk prices. After several hours of consultation between representatives of dairy farmers, wholesalers, and retailers, a decision was made to raise the price of milk by PKR 20 per liter.

According to media reports, it was decided in the meeting that retail milk will be sold at PKR 220 per liter. The farm rate will be set at PKR 195, the wholesale price at PKR 205, and the retail price at PKR 220. The price increase notification is expected to be issued today.

The adjustment follows initial demands from dairy farmers for a farm rate of Rs 250 per litre and a retail price of Rs 297 per litre, but the final agreement concluded on a hike of Rs 20.

In response, the already inflation-hit citizens stated that pure milk was already being sold at PKR 220 per liter, and they criticized the city government for remaining silent and not taking action against the milk mafia.

An official notification of the new prices is expected to be released later today. To ensure compliance, Commissioner Karachi secured written affidavits from dairy farmers, wholesalers, and retailers, committing to the new prices.
