New Delhi: The government on Thursday allowed import of 3 lakh tonnes of raw sugar at concessional duty of 25% to augment domestic supplies ahead of the festive season.

It had hiked import duty on sugar in July to 50% from 40% to curb dumping of the commodity in India as international prices fell. But to boost domestic availability and check prices, it has allowed import of 3 lakh tonnes of raw sugar at 25% duty for conversion to white sugar, a senior official said.

Sugar production in India, the world’s second largest producer, is estimated to decline to around 21 million tonnes (MT) in 2016-17 season ending September from 25 MT in the previous year. The annual demand is 24-25 MT. The government had in April allowed duty free import of 5 lakh tonnes of raw sugar to boost domestic supply.

Last month, the government had imposed stock limit on sugar mills for the next two months to keep prices in check during the festive season. By the end of September, a mill cannot keep more than 21% of its total sugar availability for the entire 2016- 17 marketing year and a factory cannot hold more than 8% at the end of October, according to the government notification issued last month.

Sugar is selling at an average price of Rs42 per kg in the retail market, while branded sweetener is available at Rs50 per kg. White sugar prices in the international market have fallen by 8% since July but raw sugar prices have remained flat. The domestic wholesale price of sugar are also flat.
