Odisha government decides to close Bargarh sugar mill

Bhubaneswar, Odisha: Amidst calls from leaders in western Odisha to revive the Bargarh Cooperative Sugar Mills, the state government has ultimately opted to shut down the factory, which has remained non-operational since 2016-17, reported The News Indian Express.

The decision to liquidate the sugar factory was made based on a report submitted by its managing director in which it was stated the mill has been lying dormant since 2016-17 with little hope of its business.

In exercise of powers under section 72 of the Odisha Cooperative Societies Act, 1962, registrar of Cooperative Societies, Odisha, Uddhaba Chandra Majhi issued an order on October 16, 2023, for liquidation of the sugar mill with immediate effect.
