The State governments are taking many measures, which include private, public partnerships and collaborations to revive non-operational sugar mills.

Not long ago, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food items and Community Distribution told the Lok Sabha that there are 202 non-operational sugar mills across the States whilst 493 mills are operational.

“In the case of private sector sugar mills, it is the accountability of the entrepreneurs to just take needed measures to operationalise their shut sugar mills, and in case of co-operative/public sector sugar mills, the accountability lies with the co-operative societies/respective state governments” the Ministry said.

Maharashtra, a single of the greatest sugarcane manufacturing States, has handed the Resolution in 2002 and framed standards to rejuvenate non-operational sugar mills and their allied models on hire, partnership or collaboration basis.

In Karnataka, the govt has made a decision to lease out the ill cooperative sugar factories to private entrepreneurs on a very long-phrase lease. Eight cooperative sugar factories have been leased out to private entrepreneur so considerably.

The Gujarat govt has sanctioned a liquidity aid mortgage for Rs twenty five crore to the Vadodara District Cooperative Sugarcane Growers Union Ltd, to fork out sugarcane arrears to the farmers to endure this non-operational sugar mill in the recent sugar season.

The Andhra Pradesh govt has fashioned a team of Ministers to review and suggest steps for the enhancement of the mills in the State. The Bihar govt has taken a plan decision to revive the ill sugar mills of the Bihar State Sugar Company Ltd by transferring them to private/public sector entrepreneurs on very long phrase lease via bid approach management.

In accordance to the Central Authorities non-procedure of the sugar mills is commonly attributable to no availability of enough sugarcane, uneconomic size of the plant, lack of modernization, the significant charge of doing work cash, very poor restoration from sugarcane, lack of qualified management, overstaffing and financial crunch etcetera.
