According to market reports the demand may pick up owing to summer demand and also there has been some optimism about sugar prices taking a hike of Rs.60 to 80/Quintal due to tighter supplies.

The notional month-end stock for the month of March 2023, has been worked out on the basis of month end stock for February 2023 (as reported on P-II) further adding the sugar lifted from sugar mills after 1st November 2022 for export as per 4.3 Column of P-II and subtracting actual release for February 2023.
