Why do you feel that there are plans to shift sugar mills to South India?
Reasons to shift sugar mills:
- Sugarcane produced in these states have higher sugar content.
- The cooler climate also ensures a longer crushing season.
- The cooperatives are more successful in these states.
- If sugarcane is transported from South to North India, due to delays in trains, sugarcane loses its sugar content as it is a perishable good.
