Trade body AISTA seeks two weeks extension for sugar sale of February quota

NEW DELHI: Trade body AISTA on Tuesday urged the government to extend the deadline of selling sugar of February quota by two weeks in March as millers were not able to sell their monthly allocated quota in the domestic market.

At present, the government fixes a monthly quota for the sale of sugar in the domestic market. On average, about 21 lakh tonne quota is fixed for a monthly sale for mills.

For the current month, the nodal food ministry has fixed 22 lakh tonnes for the sale of sugar for mills. Mills are required to sell at least 90 per cent of the monthly quota as per the stock holding limit order of the ministry.PTI
