No increase in SAP this year too

Tuesday, 16 February 2021 | PNS | Lucknow

Despite the farmers' agitation against the government policies, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided not to change the state advisory price (SAP) of sugarcane for the current crushing season.
This decision was taken in a cabinet meeting held by circulation late Sunday night.
Official sources said here on Monday that the cane farmers would get Rs 310 per quintal on rejected variety, Rs 315 per quintal on common variety and Rs 325 per quintal on advanced variety of sugarcane.
This is the third successive crushing season that no hike has been made in the sugarcane prices in the state.
In other decisions, the state cabinet permitted the government to take a loan of Rs 2,900 crore for the Ganga Expressway project for purchase of land.
The loan will be taken from Housing and Urban Development Corporation for the Ganga Expressway to be constructed from Meerut to Prayagraj.
In another decision, now the deputy commissioners of police (DCPs) of Lucknow and Noida will get the power to slap Gangster Act on any criminal. Earlier only the commissioner of police (CP) had this power.
The state government will now organise the Chitrakoot and Nauchandi fairs while land has been allotted to the Election Department in Prayagraj and Agra to build warehouses to store EVMs and VVPAT machines.
The cabinet also approved the speech of the Governor to be read on the first day of the joint sitting of the UP legislature on February 18.
