Sugar companies: As per reports, Government is not considering any sugar export subsidies from the new season beginning October due to sharp rise in global prices which makes it easier to sell in exports markets without subsidy.

To boost exports, government on Tuesday announced rates of tax refunds under the export promotion scheme RoDTEP for 8,555 products in the sectors like Marine goods, yarn, dairy, agriculture, leather, automobile, plastics, electrical, electronics machinery, jems and jewellery etc. The government has set aside Rs.12,454 cr for refunds under the scheme and tax refund rates range from 0.5-4.3% for various sectors which are lower than expected.
