Kochi: The Kerala High Court ruling in favour of Milma,  stayed the government’s move preventing Milma from hiking the milk price to Rs 5 per litre. As per the court verdict Milma had the authority to increase the selling price of milk and that the state government had no power to interfere in the matter.
