MANAGEMENT AND DISCUSSION ANALYSIS
The Sugar Industry in India showed improvement in the working of the sugar mills in theseason 2011-2012, but the overall situation has not improved much. The prediction in theGlobal and Indian sugar scenario is increased area of sugarcane cultivation resulting inhigher sugar output, in the seasons to come. The development compared to the earlier yearsare only the quarterly release mechanism in the place of monthly release and allowingexport of sugar without quantitative restrictions. The levy mechanism still continues. Theuncertainty over the availability of sugarcane and also the increase in sugarcane pricesare causing concern to the sugar mills. The Government should come out with a clear cutpolicy for the sugar industry, which will aim at reasonable sugarcane prices linked to theprice of the finished product. Modern methods of farming, mechanization and betterhi-breed inputs will help to reduce the cost of cultivation and also the cost ofproduction of sugar to improve the profitability of the industry. A better policy fromGovernment of India on Ethanol also will encourage the sugar mills to optimize theoperations of the distilleries leading to increased revenue. The Co-generation units ofthe sugar mills also can play a lead role in meeting the energy requirements of thecountry the support of the local and Central Governments.

DISTILLERY DIVISION, CHAGALLU AND JANGAREDDYGUDEM
Both the Distilleries at Chagallu and Jangareddygudem operated at near optimum level ofcapacity.
We have procured molasses from the market to keep both the Distilleries to operatecontinuously. We expect the distilleries to perform better this year as the demand forEthanol and RS is bright.
The Co-generation project has worked continuously and successfully during the seasonand generated 31546 MW of power. We have offered to generate power using coal as rawmaterial to A.P. Government, (who are very short of power and buying from other states).The Government is not willing to increase the price for the units to be supplied, hence weare keeping our generation capacity idle for almost six months
