The second important recommendation of the Commission is doing away with the cane reservation area and distance criteria for mills

The Central government has declared the fair and remunerative price (FRP) for sugarcane for the 2021-22 season, starting in October, at Rs 290 per quintal based on an average recovery of 10 per cent.
The FRP was raised by Rs 5 per quintal from the level of 2020-21. The Commission for Agriculture Costs and Prices (CACP), which recommended this price among its other recommendations for the year, has made two notable suggestions.
The first is amending the Sugarcane Control Order (SCO), 1966, to allow paying sugarcane prices to farmers in instalments.
