Dispute over milk price hike settled

By Correspondent

JORABAT, Nov 2 - The dispute between the dairy farmers and suppliers over the hike in the price of milk ended today with both parties agreeing to a Rs 2 hike per litre, instead of Rs 4.

This evening the suppliers were seen buying milk from the dairy farmers at the new rate.

A dairy farmer from Jorabat area Narayan Sharma informed that in the terms and conditions negotiated between the two parties, the retail rate of milk, after the hike, will be Rs 48 or Rs 50 depending upon the place where it is sold.

It may be mentioned that a dispute had started between the Brihattar Guwahati Gopalak Santha and the Brihattar Guwahati Byabasayik Santha over a Rs 4 hike in the price of milk. The Byabasayik Santha, consisting of the suppliers of milk in the city, was not willing to buy milk from the dairy farmers (gopalaks) at the hiked rate for distribution in Guwahati city. The gopalaks had decided to hike the price of milk by Rs 4 a litre at a meeting held at 8th Mile a few days back.

Yesterday the gopalaks suffered losses of lakhs of rupees as more than a thousand litres of milk were wasted following refusal of the suppliers to buy the item at the hiked rate.
