The essential commodity was purchased at a rate of Rs. 141.2 per kg, so the Utility Stores will sell sugar to consumers at a rate of around Rs. 156 per kg.

Earlier, the Corporation had opened a tender for procurement of 45,000 metric tons of sugar. USC officials said this procurement was necessary to meet the demand at Utility Stores, with no other option but to source the sugar at all costs to maintain supply at the state-run outlets.
