Nellore: Sugarcane farmers demand pending cane dues


Nellore: Sugarcane farmers claim that they are yet to receive the cane arrears around Rs 9 crore from Sudalagunta sugar mill located in Podalakur Mandal.

According to the news report published in The Hans India, farmers said that the mill has failed to clear the dues for the season 2018-19. They met district collector M V Seshagiri Babu on Thursday and requested him to take adequate steps to ensure that the sugar mill clears cane arrears.

The farmers stated that they were supplying sugarcane to the sugar mill based on Kovur from the last four decades but the mill witnessed huge losses and it stopped sugarcane crushing. Sudalagunta Sugars Limited of Podalakur Mandal approached the farmers in 2017-18 asking them to supply sugarcane to their factory. The farmers supplied the cane to the factory but are yet to receive payments from the mill.

According to the news report, the farmers have urged the Collector to collect the dues from the management.
