Jaggery from Sugar Cane

Here is an interesting project for Rural Areas..
For producing 200 tonnes of jaggery the unit requires 2000 tonnes of sugar cane. The extraction of juice from sugar cane works out to about 45%. There shall not be any problem in availability of proper variety of sugarcane from the cane producing states. Other ingredients like Soda/ Bhindi (Lady's finger) are all locally available. The unit will also require jute gunny bags for packing. The price of raw material and packing material at full capacity utilization is estimated to be Rs. 12.00 lakhs per year. At 60% capacity in 1st year the cost works out to Rs7.20 lakhs
As against the rated capacity of 200 tonnes the capacity utilization in first year is taken as 60%. Assuming a sale price of Rs.13,000/- per ton the annual sales revenue at rated capacity is Rs.26.00 lakhs. The same at 60% utilization is Rs.15.60 lakhs.
