Sugar Mills Cautioned Against Unfair Trade Practices
Directorate of Sugar, Department of Food, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution has been consistently getting reports about some sugar mills, resorting to the practice of issuing of sale invoices in the last of the month while the actual financial and physical transaction happens subsequently. A list of the factories against whom complaints have been recently received has been posted on the website of this department.

The Chairman and the Managing Director of the concerned sugar mills have been advised to stop henceforth any practice which is against the existing rules and regulations issued under EC Act/Sugar (Control) Order. Any deviation, subsequently found out, would be dealt with strictly.
