Milk: Delhi’s most purchased product

Life is costly in the big bad Capital.
An average Delhi family spends more money every month than its counterparts in any other part of the country. But guess what the average Delhi family spends on the most? Milk!
More than rent, fuel, clothes, conveyance and education, Delhiites’ penchant for milk and milk products takes away 10 per cent of the monthly expenses, a government survey has found.
The Delhi government on Monday released these facts in the Level and Pattern of Household Consumer Expenditure in Delhi as part of the 64th round of National Sample Survey Report.
Around 37 per cent of an average Delhi family’s expenditure goes into food. The breakup of the expenditure reveals that 10 per cent of the income is spent on milk and milk products, eight per cent on cereals and pulses, two per cent on edible oils, four per cent on vegetables and two per cent on fruits etc.
“The monthly per capita income has increased, so has expenditure on essential as well as non-essential items,” said Delhi Finance Minister A.K. Walia.
