Amul-operative registered on 1 December 1946
as a response to the exploitation of marginal
milk producers by traders or agents of the only
existing dairy, the Polson dairy, in the small
city distances to deliver milk, which often went
sour in summer, to Polson. The prices of milk
were arbitrarily determined. Moreover, the
government had given monopoly rights to
Polson to collect milk from mikka and supply
it to Bombay city.
