Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

Su­gar com­mis­sioner Samb­haji Kadu Patil has is­sued no­tices to 40 su­gar mills to pay dues to farm­ers who have sup­plied sug­ar­cane on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Out of the to­tal 187 su­gar mills in the state, only 100 mills have cleared their dues to the farm­ers. As the sea­son of the sug­ar­cane crop in Ma­ha­rash­tra comes to an end, the ques­tion of mas­sive ar­rears mount­ing to crores of ru­pees looms large be­fore the state govern­ment and the su­gar com­mis­sioner. If the mill own­ers do not pay the dues be­fore the sea­son ends, then the farm­ers will stage protests and ag­i­ta­tions in front of the mills.
