mcx servicePrices of Sugar fell in the key wholesale markets of the country as the government is likely to announce a higher sale quota for November.

Mills from Maharashtra had requested the government to give a higher quota to enable them to clear inventories. So, they are expecting quota for November to be more than 2.2 million tonnes (mln tn).

The government has imposed a cap on monthly sale of Sugar by mills to regulate supply in the market and boost prices. For October, the government allocated a total of 2.2 mln tn for sale in local markets.
