Record production of sugar in UP

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh has achieved a record production of 590 lakh quintal sugar in the current crushing season. “So far 590 lakh quintal sugar has been produced in the State by crushing 6,380 lakh quintal cane with a recovery percentage of 9.13 per cent,” an official spokesman said here on Saturday.

The figures were quoted by the officials during a departmental review meeting held by Cane Development Minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui held here on Saturday.

“Production this year is 83 lakh quintal higher than 507 lakh quintal in the last crushing season,” he said.

During the review meeting, Mr. Siddiqui said that the government was committed to timely payment of cane price and that stern action would be taken against sugar mills which delay the payment. While directing the officials to promote co-production among farmers, the Minister said that the process of realising commission given by the mills to cane committees should be speeded up.

The officials informed the Minister that as against cane dues of Rs.12,904 crore in the current crushing season, 11,800 crore has been paid to the farmers so far. -PTI
