Run out of milk? Well, now an ATM can help you!

In a pioneering move, Amul has launched India’s first Any Time Milk (ATM) vending machine.

“With the intention of helping workers who return home late at night, Amul decided to launch this unique ATM. The machine offers pouches of 300 ml of milk priced at Rs 10 per pouch. The machine can store 150 such packets. Since the packet costs just Rs 10, it helps many workers who are poor and can't afford milk in a 500 ml pouch,” says Rahul Kumar Srivastava, Managing Director, Amul Dairy.

Amul Dairy is exploring the option of installing such ATMs are more locations.

“We plan to install another 5 machines at various strategic locations. It could be near busy places like railway station, bus station or near student hostels. Large hospitals may be good for such a service. We will explore hospitals as well," says Rahul Kumar Srivastava.
