India sugar prices rise in north India due to supply disruptions.

Prices of sugar rose in the key wholesale markets of north India as supplies were disrupted due to religious processions on some routes connecting western Uttar Pradesh to the national capital. Prices of the sweetener were, however, largely unchanged in key wholesale markets of Maharashtra amid lacklustre trade. The outlook on sugar prices in the long term is bearish on expectations of higher output in 2017-18 (Oct-Sep).
