The Settlement scheme is considered as an integral part of the sugar cane cultivation. The settler area consists of 4024 hectares. Lands are divided into plots of l.75 ha which are leased to individual settlers and 0.25 ha allocated for his homestead.   The company purchases their crop of sugar cane at pre-determined prices under a forward sales contract. Farmers have been provided with assistance to maintain co-operative outlets, primary schools, health care centres, temples, canals, wells, micro irrigation systems etc. Settlers supply around 125,000 MT of cane annually


Since the formation of this scheme 1600 farmer families drawn from different parts of the country have been settled in this scheme. PSIL assists farmers to cultivate their cane by supplying seed cane, fertilizer, agricultural extension services, machinery for land preparation and extension services.
