NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India will soon take a decision on the need to import sugar, Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said in a Twitter post on Monday.

Reuters last month reported that New Delhi was planning to allow an additional 200,000 tonnes of duty-free sugar imports because of production falling below consumption in the 2016/17 marketing year.
