Beyond Tobacco Hansavivek ITC has completed a major portion of first phase modernisation programme aimed at introducing modern technology, upgrading plant and machinery and improving process and productivity in India Tobacco Division's Bangalore and Saharanpur factories and second phase covering other factories is being taken up. Division has maintained its volume during 1983-84 and improved its share in a declining market. Management expects current year would be better. Indian Leaf Tobacco Division remained profitable in spite of generally depressed market conditions in domestic and export markets, A breakthrough in export of non-cigarette type of tobaccos to Middle East and North African countries augurs well.

This, according to management, will mean more remunerative prices for farmers for tobacco of right quality, which in long run should lead to improved quality and yields.
