Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The government has taken a decision to lease out sick cooperative sugar factories to private parties to avert their closure and run them on healthy lines.

The modalities will be worked out after submission of a report by this month-end by AP Industrial & Technology Consultancy Organisation (APITCO) which is studying various aspects of individual sugar factories.
