Such a huge increase? However, prior to this, Chennai had the lowest bus fares in the entire country.

More Over in India liquors prices are very high when compared to other states....If Govt of TamilNadu is loosing its revenue from Bus, Milk & Electricity but they are gaining a lot from Tasmac and even their employees too...

W.r.t to buses - I doubt whether services will improve .. Otherwise price-wise it is fair considering diesel hike/employee salaries etc to be revised... People having to travel on foot-board (by force not by choice) ... Having to wait for 1/2 hr to get even that chance.... All this needs to be improved to justify the above...

As regards the dairy sector, the price of toned milk per litre would be revised from Rs. 17.75 to Rs.24. The last increase was made in September 2009. The procurement price of milk paid to dairy farmers would go up from Rs.18 to Rs. 20 per litre for cow milk and from Rs. 26 to Rs. 28 for buffalo milk.
This is a very good move. People who live in city don't understand how difficult it is to produce milk [No offense]. Cattle food rate increased like petrol price but milk price didn't increase. We stopped selling milk due to the losses.
