Uttar Pradesh would now produce 10 lakh liter of ethanol annually. Yogi government has approved the proposal of large-scale production of ethanol in the state. Keeping its poll promise, Yogi Government has increased the remunerations of part-time instructors and cooks of state run schools.

In the meeting of UP cabinet presided by Chief Minister Yogi Adhityanath on Tuesday several important decisions were taken including maintenance of roads, collecting toll tax on the Purvanchal expressway and others. Briefing about the cabinet decisions, Finance Minister Suresh Khanna and Industrial Development Minister Nand Gopal Gupta informed that UP would now start production of ethanol a large scale.

With the bulk production of ethanol, the financial condition of sugar mills would improve resulting in timely payment of cane dues to farmers. At present UP has been importing ethanol from China through Hindustan Petroleum. However, the production of 10 lakh liter annually would make UP self-reliant.
