Issues with sugar subsidy UPSC NOTE


  • A group of WTO member countries, including Brazil, Canada and the European Union, have urged India to submit timely notifications on sugar subsidies in the World Trade Organisation

  • These countries are also major sugar exporters like India and they allege that support measures by India distort global sugar trade

  • Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Paraguay, New Zealand, the EU, and Guatemala have “urged India to submit timely notifications on the subsidies,

  • India has stated that the central and State governments neither paid for nor procured sugarcane from farmers, as all purchases were made by private sugar mills

  • Hence, this information was not included in its notifications of domestic support.

  • According to their study, over the four-year period from 2018-19 to 2021-22, India has provided market price support on sugarcane in excess of the limits set out in the Agreement on Agriculture (10 per cent of the total value of sugarcane production) by a margin of 92-101 per cent.

  • They claimed that India failed to report any of these subsidies in its past notifications since 1995
