This has certainly given a relief to sugar millers across the country to sell their sugar stocks. This measure has prevented the sugar millers from facing financial pressure and undercuts or selling below the Minimum Selling Price of sugar. In the next coming days, the industry will surely witness fresh buying owing to the natural summer demand.
