prices have increased this year due to estimated fall in production of sweetener at about 20 million tonnes in 2016-17 season from 25 million tonnes in the previous year Top News The government on Wednesday hiked the fair price for sugarcane by Rs 25 per quintal to benefit five crore farmers across cane producing states The fair and remunerative price (FRP) which is the minimum price sugar mills have to pay to farmers has been increased from Rs 230 per quintal to Rs 255 for 2017-18 seasons that kicks-in from October The hike approved by the Union Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) is the first this year The increase is also likely to result in states like Uttar Pradesh which do not follow the Centre-announced FRP raising their own advisory prices Major sugarcane producing states like Uttar Pradesh Punjab and Haryana fix their own sugarcane price called ‘state advisory prices’ (SAP) which is usually higher than the Centre’s FRP Uttar Pradesh has fixed the SAP for the current 2016-17 year at Rs 305 and Rs 315 per quintal for two varieties of sugarcane Following the revision in FRP the two-month-old Yogi Adityanath government which is battling problems on law and order front may also announce higher rates to benefit UP farmers Yogi Adityanath government’s first decision after coming to power was to waive loans of farmers The FRP which is the minimum price that mills have to pay to sugarcane farmers was kept unchanged at Rs 230 per quintal for the current 2016-17 year (October-September) “Sugar mills situation has improved For 2017-18 sugarcane FRP of Rs 255 per quintal has been approved which is 106 per cent higher than the current level” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told reporters after the meeting The move is a reflection of the government’s pro-farmer initiatives keeping in mind the interest of sugarcane farmers and importance of the sugar industry the statement said The FRP price is linked to a basic recovery rate of 95 per cent subject to a premium of Rs 268 per quintal for every 01 per cent point increase in recovery rate The FRP has been fixed on the basis of recommendations of the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP) a statutory body that advises the government on the pricing policy for major farm produce Higher rate has been fixed for 2017-18 taking into account the rise in cost of production and millers’ capacity to pay the rate in view of better sugar prices Sugar prices have increased this year due to estimated fall in production of sweetener at about 20 million tonnes in 2016-17 season from 25 million tonnes in the previous year Asked about some states fixing higher price than FRP Jaitley said that this situation continues as the matter is pending in the Supreme Court Sugarcane production in the current year declined by over 12 per cent to 30603 million tonnes due to drought in key growing states Maharasthra and Karnataka However the prospects in 2017-18 seem to be bright as

his team on NH-91 “Don’t tarnish this as a rape highway” says Singh (Express Photo by Ishita Mishra) Top News A visibly annoyed senior sub inspector (SSI) Bhawar Pal Singh scans the duty roster at the Kotwali Dehat police station in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr district He has just got off a patrol jeep part of a two-vehicle convoy that entered the compound a few minutes earlier While two constables and a home-guard from his detail head off in different directions — two to the mess and the third towards the toilet — Bhawar Singh makes his way to a table outside the SHO’s office where the roster is placed It’s 745 pm and another home-guard seated on a chair outside the station lock-up is popping some pills “Bukhar hai ise Iski lal ankhon se nahi dikhta aapko (He has fever Can’t you tell from his red eyes)” the SSI says Singh pulls out a whistle from his pocket and as its shrillness resonates through the station compound two ASIs four constables and two home-guards rush towards him Singh asks his men if they have eaten and if they’re carrying their weapons and flash-lights The police personnel here are under pressure; just last Friday a woman and her 14-year-old daughter were dragged out of their car and gang-raped at a desolate stretch of National Highway-91 which falls under their jurisdiction The crime site is just 4 km from the Kotwali Dehat police station The personnel here are aware of the scrutiny “Mahendra Singh you will go to the highway The other team will patrol the villages Move fast It’s already 805 pm The media is here They will tag us lazy and corrupt” Bhawar Singh says before heading off to the mess A while later a Mahindra jeep sputters to life and as it leaves behind a trail of thick black fumes it takes ASI Mahendra Singh’s team towards the now infamous NH-91 On board though the policemen show little urgency The jeep moves at a steady pace while the men point their torches towards the dark fields At 830 pm just as it is about to enter NH-91 the jeep comes to a stop under a huge street light at a T-point leading up to the highway Three of the policemen get off and disperse in different directions “This is how we catch truckers who drink and drive” explains Mahendra Singh 59 “We can judge who is intoxicated by the way they turn their vehicles into the highway” he adds Just then Deepak Singh a young constable from Muzaffarnagar district shouts out “Sir let’s move to the left A truck has been parked there for a long time; they must be drinking” The four men climb back in and the jeep is started with the help of a pin which has been fitted to a wire near the steering wheel There is an unmistakable stench in the vehicle an unholy concoction perhaps of sweat grime and leather and Mahendra is apologetic “This vehicle is on the road day and night As one team leaves it another picks it up The government doesn’t even care We get just 200 litres of petrol to run it for the whole month How can one manage the maintenance petrol and other expenses with this amount” he says “Just 200 litres” repeats Yashpal Singh the trainee driver of constable rank who joined the department only a fortnight ago “This jeep has run almost 1600 km in the past 15 days How will we manage for the rest of the month” he says Some 600 metres later the jeep stops beside the offending truck The lorry driver is ordered out Rajendra Kumar the home-guard accompanying the patrol team ventures near the driver “He is drunk” Rajendra declares soon after patting the driver on the head The patrolling party proceeds to search the vehicle and finds several country-made liquor bottles inside The confiscated bottles are destroyed beside a nearby bush Once they realise that the occupants haven’t had much to drink themselves the police personnel show some leniency and let them go Having dealt with the distraction the team moves on Around 915 pm the jeep again comes to halt this time at the ‘Thandi Payu’ police chowki There is a police team at the spot “All well” asks Mahendra Singh as two constables rush to him with a broken chair It’s a two-room outpost: one for the policemen to rest and the other to keep prisoners There is no drinking water and no toilet Pointing towards the only bulb inside Mahendra says “We used to work in candlelight here Later we all pooled money and got an inverter It’s better now” The ASI laments that despite being the only government body along with the Army to work 24X7 and even on national holidays police have to fight for even bare necessities The rest of the group — seven constables two ASIs and two home-guards — join in talking about poor sanitary facilities low salaries lack of manpower no electricity even the lack of chairs It doesn’t stop there They allege that police stations never get the money that is sanctioned for paying informers and for other odd jobs and end up paying from their own pockets They also point out that a junior policeman’s basic pay starts at a meagre Rs 5200 a month which may go up to Rs 15000 “Is Rs 5200 sufficient to sustain a family of three or four When these petty expenses are added up imagine the psychological pressure on police personnel If we take help from people like some petrol on rent or help in maintenance of our jeeps you call us corrupt” says Mahendra Singh who after having served the UP police for 27 years is a year from his retirement “And you expect us to work efficiently in these conditions” adds Deepak saying that he can “give in writing” that if working hours are fixed for policemen the force would not misbehave with anyone As the conversation flits between politics education and even the spiritual the men keep a keen eye on the surroundings occasionally switching on and off their flash-lights It is however interrupted at 945 pm when an ambulance stops on the highway Watch Video: What’s making news The men rush towards it While there is no patient inside the driver complains of stomach issues He seeks help to contact his employer Kailash Hospital some 40 km from the spot and claims his phone battery has run out He is offered water and a constable’s phone The person he contacts tells the ambulance driver to make it up to the next crossing where his employers have arranged for a team to meet him He leaves thanking the policemen Mahendra Singh’s team then gets back on the jeep and heads towards the picket near Khurja the last spot under the jurisdiction of Kotwali Dehat police in Bulandshahr It is 1015 pm when the party reaches and they have to stay till midnight “This is the place from where one can enter the villages here So it is quite crucial” says Deepak “Sir macchar bahut kaat rahe hain Kal bukhar bhi aa gya tha (Sir there are too many mosquitoes here I even had fever yesterday)” complains Yashpal the youngest of the lot Mahendra Singh takes out a small bottle which contains a local mosquito repellant ‘Baba Usmani Macchar Bhagao’ says the cover on the bottle and Mahendra tells Yashpal to apply it At the picket in Khurja the discussion veers towards the incidents of last Friday The men all proclaim that they haven’t seen or even heard of such a brutal crime on NH-91 “Lootings and robberies do happen but raping a 14-year-old in front of her father is horrible We ask people not to stop their cars on the highway Even if something hits you drive until you reach a busy spot” says Rajendra To the victim’s family’s claim that calls to the number 100 went unanswered he says “Police are always there call again and again It’s BSNL there can be false rings” The incident the team says has dented an already short-staffed force With nearly 10 of the 50 police personnel attached to the Kotwali police station suspended the remaining 40 have been left to patrol the 142 villages under their jurisdiction As a result the men say they have been working 24 hours a day since Saturday Mahendra insists that the Bulandshahr incident is a one-off “Don’t tarnish this highway as a rape highway or a crime centre or use any other dramatic word I would urge people to please come to NH-91 whenever they want Feel safe and trust the police” the ASI says Settling in for the remainder of his night duty that extends till 8 am he adds “Policemen have to deal with postings promotions transfers and chargesheets depending on the whims of those in power If a policeman is active and honest he won’t work as per the orders of the politician in power so they choose the corrupt ones” Along the highway following the incident the policemen are not taking a chance It’s 1:30 am and 11 trucks two buses and five cars have been stopped at a police picket near Wajeedpur road “It’s not a checking drive” say the police personnel manning the picket “We are forming convoys to ensure the safety of these night commuters” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sakshi Dayal | Gurgaon | Published: October 1 2017 12:41 am Three died and
