Pay cane farmers their dues within 14 days: District magistrate to sugar mills


Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh: Clear all the dues of cane farmers within 14 days of cutting their cane, said district magistrate Akhilesh Tiwari. He threatened to take strict action against the mills that fail to abide by the rules. He was speaking in a meeting of the officials and sugar mill officers from the district.

The rule mandates that sugarcane amount should be deposited to the farmers’ bank accounts within 14 days after the sugarcane harvest is handed over to the factory owners, but millers in the district failed to do so.

The millers have assured to clear dues of the year 2018-19 by February 10. The DM expressed displeasure over the slow pace of sugarcane payment in Hargaon and Mahmudabad and said, “We will take strict action against the millers if they fail to pay the dues.”
