Panaji: The state government has granted post facto approval to the preparation of the detailed project report (DPR) to set up an ethanol production plant at Sanjivani Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana Ltd (SSSKL) at Dharbandora. The DPR will be prepared by the Deccan Sugar Technology Association (India), Pune.
The sugar mill set up in 1971 had stopped cane crushing from 2019-20 season due to technical glitches in the mill and shortage of sugarcane for crushing. The government had then sent the cane to the sugar mill in Belgavi, Karnataka for crushing.
The sugarcane farmers are demanding the government to take steps and revive the closed sugar mill so that they could send their cane to the mill for crushing.
