Government may amend `state` term in Sugar ordinance
New Delhi: In a bid to resolve the
problem over sugarcane pricing controversy, the Government is
understood to be toying with the idea of amending the relevant
ordinance by removing the term `state` to ease the burden on
the state governments on paying the farmers the difference in
amount over the fair price.
The move comes against the backdrop of a combined
opposition assault in Parliament over Sugarcane (Control)
Order Ordinance that has led to the disruption of both houses
yesterday and today.
Sources said the term state could be dropped in a
"A bill could be introduced in Parliament amending the
present Ordinance. There is no problem as that is allowed,"
government sources said.
The House witnessed slogan shouting for withdrawal of
the Order, which fixes a uniform Fair and Remunerative Price
(FRP) which would put the burden on states if the difference
has to be paid by them.
