Government link the export of sugar with payment to farmers


The Ministry of Trade imposed the condition on the sugar mills for the export of sugar with clearnace of farmers dues and payments. The ministry also linked the export of the sugar with the domestic prices. If the sugar prices in the country increased till 31st March 2017, then the sugar mills will not be allowed to export the sugar.

The linkage of the export qouta from the State Bank for the sugar export is a right decision to force the sugar mills to pay the dues of the farmers on time. It has become a routine for the sugar mills to delay the payments of sugar cane growers for months. The small farmers suffered the most because they do not have enough finances to grow another crop without getting payments from sugar mills. This measure will help to stop this exploitation of the farmers.
