Bahraich: After the district magistrate threatened to take strict action against the sugar mills that have failed in clearing cane dues, the sugar mills from the district have geared up to clear the arrears.
Chilwaria sugar mill has cleared Rs 6 crore to the cane farmers on Saturday. The management has also claimed to pay the farmers’ dues by March 10. This has brought relief among the cane farmers.
District Collector Shambhu Kumar had recently warned the sugar mill of strict action if the mills fail to clear pending cane dues to the farmers.
