New Delhi: Mother Dairy on Friday said it has increased prices of milk up to Rs 2 per litre in the National Capital Region due to reduced availability of milk after the recent drought.

The dairy major has increased prices of full cream variant from Rs 26 to Rs 28 per litre and that of toned milk from Rs 21 to Rs 22 per litre.

Prices of bulk vended milk, double-toned milk and skimmed milk will remain unchanged. Milk prices in Delhi NCR still lower than that in most Metros, Mother Dairy said in a statement.

The recent drought has led to reduced availability of milk, impacting prices. As a result, prices of two variants are being increased, Mother Dairy said.

"The prices of these variants were last revised 13 months ago. However, consumers in Delhi NCR will continue to enjoy milk at lower rates compared to most major metros," Mother Dairy Fruits and Vegetable Pvt Ltd CEO Paul Thachil said.

"Despite competitor brands increasing prices a few months back, as the market leader in Delhi and keeping consumer interest in mind, Mother Dairy ensured that prices of its milk variants were not increased," Thachil said.
