The lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic has severely affected several sectors including sugar. The demand for sugar has been reduced as the industries like cold drinks, ice cream, bakeries and sweet shops are shut due to lockdown. Sugar mills are passing through a challenging time. As they are unable to sell the sugar amid lockdown, sugar stocks are piling up in warehouses. And also they are unable to clear cane payment due to financial scarcity.
