India Sugar down in Maharashtra on poor demand, unchanged in north India.

Prices of sugar fell in the key markets of Maharashtra due to sluggish demand from bulk buyers. Buyers stayed away from the markets due to heavy rainfall in the region, pulling down prices of the sweetener. In the key wholesale markets of north India, however, prices were largely stable due to lacklustre trade. There is only hand-to-mouth demand as crushing season is nearing and there is fear of government action in case prices rise.
