Today ChiniMandi reported that experts believe the government may permit sugar export for the new crop sometime in September/October.

Speaking on export possibilities, sugar expert and Director of Gradient Commercial Pvt. Ltd., Yatin Wadhwana, said, “The government will look at allowing export of sugar from the new crop sometime in September/October and it will be a graded approach with quota system with 1-2 million MT in the first tranche followed by subsequent quantities based on the progress of the crop and the Ethanol programme. As always their priority will be domestic consumption, followed by the ethanol blending programme and exports of any further surplus. Given the current progress of the Monsoon in the growing areas and the crop condition we can estimate a sugar production of upwards of 32 million MT after diversion to Ethanol for the next crop, which means that there will be surplus available for export after taking care of the Ethanol blending programme.”

India had imposed restrictions on sugar exports due to concerns about a poor harvest and high domestic prices.
