Mehta informed the council that the new policy will provide incentives to sugarcane farmers, encourage small and micro industries and create job opportunities in the Jaggery industry.


The detailed project report (DPR) of the “Bihar state jaggery industries promotion programme” has been included in the fourth agricultural road map, he said while responding to a short-notice question of BJP member Sarvesh Kumar, reported the Hindustan times.

“The programme would be implemented from the next crushing season to ensure sugarcane cultivated by farmers is consumed by local small and micro jaggery industries,” he said.
