With carry over stock of 4 million tonnes and estimated production of about 27.2 million tonnes, the availability of Sugar in the country during 2017-18 is estimated to be about 31.2 million tonnes.

Industry body ISMA has revised upward Sugar production estimates for the current marketing year to 29.5 million tonnes. In a written reply to the Lok Sabha, Minister of State for Food CR Chaudhary said Sugar production is estimated at 27.2 million tonnes for the current marketing year.

Sugar availability will be more than the estimated annual demand of 25 million tonnes. Sugar production in top three producing states of Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka is pegged at 10.1 million tonnes, 9.05 million tonnes and 3.15 million tonnes, respectively, in 2017-18 year.

The government will take necessary measures at appropriate time to promote export of Sugar, if required, depending upon the domestic production and availability, minister of State for Food CR Chaudhary said.
