Set up committee to determine milk procurement price in TN

The Tamil Nadu Milk Producers’ Welfare Association submitted a petition to the Chief Minister requesting the State government to constitute an expert committee to determine the procurement price of milk and to revise the maximum retail price accordingly.

In the petition, the association demanded the Chief Minister to increase the procurement price as the cost of livestock feed had gone up. It wanted the procurement price of cow milk hiked from ₹ 32 to ₹ 42 and that of buffalo milk from ₹ 41 to ₹ 57.
