This thesis attempts to analyse the conditions of the sugar industry in part of Andhra Pradesh and it is hoped that the results of these studies indirectly show the possibility of improving the efficiency of sugar production in the country. The discussion is divided into seven parts. In the first Chapter, as an introduction, a brief history of Indian sugar Industry has been outlined. The same section further deals with economic factors such as general position of sugar-cane area, production and yield, utilisation of sugarcane, world trend of sugar consumption and production, export of and Indians share in the venture. The gradual rise of the Century sugar industry in the 20th is discussed and a brief mention of Government programmes to developed the industry through Five Year Plans. A study of the development of the sugar industry in Andhra Pradesh is concentrated into the Second Chapter. Here the discussion goes further to trace the situation prior to the three Plan periods - and subsequent developments - increase in sugarcane acreage, production and yield, condition of the factories and the intensive cane development drives. The field of research narrows down in the Third and Fourth Chapters to the district of Nizamabad in Andhra Pradesh, which is the main subject of this work. The causes of the localisation of the sugar industry in this particular district along with a brief description of the Nizam Sugar Factory and cultivation of sugarcane and price fluctuation have been assessed. In the subsequent parts every endeavour has been made to throw light upon the cultural, economic and social problems, along with the working and localisation, planning and by-products of the sugar industry in the district. Though the whole discussion is based on the facts avail-able in official and unofficial publications, the conclusions reached in the last Chapter are interpretations of the existing facts, in which some possible suggestions have been made to avert the adverse forces jeopardising the expansion and growth of this important national industry, and will contribute towards increasing production of the sugar industry and placing it on a sounder footing.
