INDIAN SUGAR MILL ASSOCIATION


ISMA is the oldest industrial association in the country which was established in 1932 when tariff protection was granted to the industry. It is recognized by the Central and State Governments as the central apex organization to voice the cause of the sugar industry. Sugar mills established in the private sector as well as the public sector are eligible to become members of ISMA. Its total strength of membership as on date stands at 237 and accounts for about half of the country's total sugar production. ISMA's history is mostly synonymous to the growth of the sugar industry in India which also began in early 1930's.

ISMA is an apex organization and maintains close contacts with all regions in India through a network of regional associations and with international organizations and associations through international bodies. ISMA is the interface between the industry and Government on matters relating to sugar policy, statistics on production, sales, exports/ imports, prices, etc.


Organization
ISMA
ISMA maintains database for the sugar industry which is shared with all the member factories, media and also various Government organizations. The association publishes a monthly journal, 'Indian Sugar', as well as yearly publications called 'Indian Sugar Year Book- Vol 1', which includes List of sugar mills in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka giving all relevant information about each sugar factory. A statistical handbook is also prepared every year on production, prices, sales, exports/imports, etc.

India had entered the sugar export market for the first time in the year 1957 which was entirely with efforts and on the initiative of ISMA. ISMA itself then undertook export of sugar as the export agency of the Government for which a separate wing was started. The office of the association functions through its Executive Committee, Governing Council and various standing sub-committees on specific issues. Special cells have also been created to provide guidance and help to the members on important topics. ISMA's R&D Cell about sugarcane has successfully identified promising sugarcane varieties in improving sugarcane productivity which received recognition from various research institutes and Government organizations, etc. The results have been encouraging in the recent two years. ISMA is the member of several International industry associations including International Sugar Organisation, World Sugar Research Organisation, World Association of Beet and Cane Growers and Global Alliance for Sugar Trade Reforms and Liberalisation. India is largest consumer of sugar and 2nd largest producer in the world.

Membership
Any person in the private / public sector owning or managing one or more factories worked by steam, water, electric and/or other power for the manufacture of sugar by vacuum pan process shall be eligible for the membership of the Association in respect of each such mill or factory. ISMA'S statistical services maintain a global and domestic agricultural market intelligence, key indicators, outlook analysis, a wealth of data on sugarcane and its by-products. Reporting mainly includes Indian current scenario on sugarcane acreages, world sugar forecasts, harvesting and crushing reports, historical detailing on acreages/ yields/production/utilisation/stock position/ policies and related data upto State/Country level.

Sugar Mills Association
Since, the sugar mills in India consume their own bagasse to run their mills during the season and generate steam to run the boilers and turbines; they generate power to run their plants. Surplus energy can be exported mostly to the grid of distribution licensees. The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) is main central body which usually regulates the various aspects of generation and supply system at national levels. Besides CERC, there are other State Regulatory Commissions in each and every State to deal with the aspect of tariff and regulation of generation, supply and distribution of energy.
