Chandigarh, August 18 
Come Friday and Punjab State Cooperative Milk Producers Federation will hike the prices of milk by Rs 2 a litre. 
A decision to this effect was taken today, keeping in view the hike in prices of milk by other milk producers including Amul India. With the rising input costs, the cost of milk procurement has gone up, said officials in the dairy cooperative. 
It may be mentioned that Verka has 60 per cent of the Punjab dairy market in the urban segments. The hike will thus have far reaching impact. The daily demand of milk in the state is around 12 lakh litre. 
Officers in Milkfed said the procurement price offers to the dairy farmers had not been hiked. This is because their prices were hiked recently, and the total hike given to them this year is Rs 50 per kg fat.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
