Sugarcane and Sugar

An overview of the Sugarcane and Sugar Industry of India:

“Our Indian tax money is used to subsidize (through export subsidy) the sugar prices for Iran, Indonesia and Malaysian customers while our poor people continue pay full prices.”

The Irony
  1. Efficiency of Production
  2. Efficiency in Transportation
  3. Productivity (Yield / Acre)
    1. one of the highest in the world (Maharashtra sugarcane belt)
  4. Manufacturing of sugar
  5. Political interference
  6. Export Possibility
  7. Level of maturity in manufacturing and value addition
    1. extremely low
    2. this has to be addressed by creation of special economic zones (which can import cheaper sugar without any duties)
    3. or providing sugar at export prices (subsidized) so that local manufacturing of sugar based goods can start and grow.
