SCA asks government to implement fixed rate of sugarcane

Sindh Chamber of Agriculture (SCA) has demanded of the government to implement the sugarcane's fixed rate of Rs 182 per 40 kilogram. The chamber has also decided to become party to the petition filed in Sindh High Court by the Sugar Mills Association. The members, in a meeting held here, expressed concern that if the sugar mills in Sindh did not start crushing, standing crops on thousands of acres would be affected and the next cultivation might not be in time.

The meeting was told that the rate of Rs 182 per 40kg of sugarcane had been fixed by the Sindh Minister for Agriculture in consensus with the sugar mill owners but now the owners were trying to block implementation of the rate to maintain their monopoly.

Opposing the application filed by the sugar mills association in Sindh High Court, the chamber decided to become party to the petition. The meeting decided that the representatives of SCA would remain present in the court on November 19. The meeting was chaired by SCA President Syed Nadeem Qamar.
