Sugar prices down in Mumbai on stock cap imposition.

Prices of sugar fell in the key wholesale markets of Mumbai as implementation of stock-holding limit on mills dampened the sentiment. Sugar stocks in north India are already quite low. Stock limits would ensure slower release by the mills now. The government has imposed stock holding limits on sugar mills for September and October. Sugar mills can hold up to 21% of the total sugar supply of 2016-17 (Oct-Sep) season as of end of September, and 8% of the supply as of end of October.
