1million tonnes (mt) of raw sugar to tide over domestic demand has sharply
divided the industry.India has sufficient stocks of sugar and does not need to

"There is more than sufficient availability of sugar, far beyond the domestic
requirement with sizeable carry forward stocks to the next year," Indian Sugar
Mills Association president Ranjit Puri said in a statement.
