Pune: The Commission of Agriculture Cost and Prices (CACP) has recommended to pay FRP to cane farmers in installments.
According to the news report published in Indianexpress.com, the CACP in its latest report has asked the central government to suitably amend the Sugarcane Control Order 1966 so that the sugar mills could pay farmers FRP in installments.
As per the act, mills must clear cane bills of farmers within 14 days of crushing their cane. The sugar commissioner is entitled to fine the mills if they fail to clear cane dues on time.
Similar recommendations were made by the NITI aayog in 2020 which was opposed by the farmers.
