Vidyadhar Anaskar, chairman of the board of administrators, MSC Bank,said:“Sugar mills in the state were in financial distress last year due to drought and flood conditions. The state Cabinet had come forward urging the bank to increase the pledge loan amount, and therefore, the bank revised the loan amount from usual 85% to 90% of the pledged stocks.” “During the previous season, sugar prices were fluctuating as a result of which the bank was forced to revise sugar valuations from time to time.”
