Radha Mohan justified increase in the retail milk prices by up to Rs.3/litre by companies like Mother Dairy and Amul, saying that it will benefit farmers whose input cost has gone up. There is no system to fix milk price in the country. But, the increase in rates will benefit farmers who are incurring high cost on inputs like feed and fodder," Singh said.
