The Nainital Dugdh Utpadak Sahakari Sangh Limited (NDUSSL) management committee has approved the decision to increase by Rs two per litre, the price at which milk is being purchased from producers at the village level. The decision taken considering the Dairy Development minister Saurabh Bahuguna’s directions and the rising cost of milk will be applicable from April 17. Since March 2022, the NDUSSL has hiked the purchase price of milk by a total of Rs eight per litre since March 2022.
The NDUSSL head Mukesh Bora informed that Bahuguna had directed that the milk producers should be provided adequately for the production cost. Following this, the decision was taken to increase the rate by Rs two per litre for milk procured from 30,000 milk producers of 604 dairy committees associated with Aanchal. Following this, the milk will be purchased at Rs 45 per litre from Monday. He said that the NDUSSL is making better efforts to benefit the producers through dairy committees.
Along with veterinary doctor facility, emergency cattle treatment, disease prevention camps, vaccination for protection from contagious diseases and other efforts are being undertaken.

Considering market demand, Aanchal has also launched homogenised milk along with the already available pasteurised milk with the demand for the homogenised milk rising consistently.
