Industry Demands In Focus

The sugar sector is especially in focus, as the powerful industry's National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories or NFCSF, asked for an increase in MSP on sugar. The federation has pegged its demand at 42 per kg.

Some of the other issues concerning the industry are the country's ethanol policy and restricting exports, to support domestic supply. Apart from the alcohol blending exercise, the emphasis is also on other sustainable fuels, including a policy on producing green hydrogen.

In addition, other demands that have been placed by industry bodies, in the public domain, also touch upon regulatory issues in the sector.
