Sugar Productions Sufficient to Meet Requirement

 

 

                    

Sugar production in the current sugar season 2012-13 is estimated to be sufficient to meet the estimated domestic consumption requirement.  As such, large surplus production of sugar in this season is not expected at present.  Changes in export policy would be made, if considered appropriate depending upon the production, availability and international as well as domestic prices of sugar.  As regards revision of import duty, no decision has been taken by the Government so far.  The production, demand, import and export of sugar during each of last three sugar seasons and the estimated figures for 2012-13 are as under;
