The government has distributed about
Tk 100 crore among sugarcane farmers this year to develop the sugar industry, said Industries Minister Dilip Barua yesterday.
"Digital capital will be arranged for the sugarcane farmers in future to increase sugar production," he told a meeting on sugarcane farming and sugar industries' future at North Bengal Sugar Mills in Natore.
"No irregularity in money distribution among farmers will be tolerated," he said. He asked officials to remain alert so that farmers are not cheated.
Referring to different steps taken in sugarcane framing, he said more than Tk 17.50 crore had been given in subsidies to TSP fertiliser.
As part of diversification process in sugar mills, Barua said, steps have been taken to make white sugar from raw sugar and generate power through co-generation method in the North Bengal Sugar Mills.
Seeking cooperation from all to implement the government's steps, the minister said: "We want to make Bangladesh a industry-based one."
