DEHRADUN, 23 Dec: The New Year will come with a gift for sugarcane farmers. On the orders of Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, Rs 98 crores have been released to the Government Sugar Mills for the payment of arrears of sugarcane farmers. Within two-three days, government sugar mills will get this amount. Provisions have been made for this in the supplementary budget.
It is worth noting that, recently, sugarcane price in the state has been increased by Rs 1 per quintal. Sugarcane price in Uttarakhand is more than Rs 2 per quintal as compared to UP. Now, for the early variety of sugarcane, the rate will be Rs 327 per quintal and, for normal variety, it will be Rs 317 per quintal.
