Sugar prices notched down by Rs 50 per quintal at the wholesale market in the national capital today, pulled down by ample stocks on availability due to relentless supplies from mills amid negligible buying support from stockists and bulk consumers.
Marketmen said huge stocks positions following increased arrivals from mills along with negligible offtake by stockists and bulk consumers such as soft-drink makers, led to the fall in prices.
Meanwhile, Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan yesterday said that the country has no shortage of sugar and the government will ensure retail prices of the sweetener remain stable during the ongoing festive season.
