Less mango export from UP this year as prices soar higher than usual

Mango growers of Uttar Pradesh have suffered losses this year due to poor production owing to adverse weather conditions.

The government is considering raising import duty on sugar to 60 per cent from the current 40 per cent to restrict cheap shipments and maintain domestic prices.
The government will entrust water user groups with the management of 99 irrigation projects that are in various stages of development across the country.
India, the world's biggest sugar consumer, had made a similar move in April as two straight droughts in 2014 and 2015 reduced output while demand stayed high.
