Govt urged to allow 80 LT sugar exports  in 2022-23 marketing year

The government should allow exports of 80 lakh tonnes of sugar in the 2022-23 marketing year starting October in view of surplus production, the Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) has reportedly urged. The actual sugar production in 2022-23 would be 355 lakh tonnes. Therefore, after considering domestic sugar consumption of 275 lakh tonnes, it becomes imperative to export at least 80 lakh tonnes of surplus sugar in order to maintain optimum sugar balance in the country, it was pointed out, as per a report.
