Maharashtra’s sugar industry will begin the 2019-20 crushing season on November 22, following a decision taken by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari in consultation with senior bureaucrats and millers.

“It was decided to start the season from November 22,” said sugar commissioner Shekhar Gaikwad.

Crushing season has been delayed in the state because it is under President’s Rule and hence there is no committee of ministers which fixes the commencement date of the season every year.

The revised estimate of sugar production was also approved at the meeting.

Sugar production is expected to be 5.8 million tonnes this year, against 10.7 million tonnes last year, said Gaikwad. The estimate is 46% below previous year’s estimate.
