​​ In the absence of an integrated sugar-field to sale policy, the Indian sugar industry has become a victim of surplus production and price mismatch of sugarcane and finished sugar. Despite a lower estimated sugar production at​​ around 12.8 million tonnes for 1996-97 against 16.7 million tonnes in the previous year, the total availability is put to 20.8​​ million tonnes including a carryover stock of 8 million tonnes from the previous year. Of this the domestic consumption may​​ not exceed 13.5 million tonnes. Though the industry could export 10.5 million tonnes to different countries during 1995-96, this year's export policy, existing norms and​​ international market conditions may bring down the export quantity to half a million tonnes.

1. There may be a fall in the sugar price during 1997-98.

2. The quantum of current year's sugar production is close to the envisaged.

3. India's sugar export was the highest in recent times during 1995-96.

4. India need not import sugar during the next few years.
