Abstract:

The present study was based on secondary data, collected from various published and unpublished sources, i.e., Cooperative Sugar, Indian Sugar, Statistical Abstract of India and Indian Agriculture in Brief and Agriculture Prices in India. Data were collected for the periods 1947- 48 to 2013-14. The coefficients of variation were 30.22, 35.39, 42.53 and 105.89 percent during period I, II, III and IV, respectively, indicating that stability in the sugar prices was maximum during period I. Linear growth rates were found to be 5.16, 4.98, 4.80 and 4.71 percent during period III, I, IV and II, respectively. There is a need to streamline the levy system and establish anti-dumping measures to check fall in sugar price and to protect the domestic growers. The export should be restricted and import should be encouraged to stabilize domestic price of sugar.
