On Monday, the Indian stock market opened on a flat note with the selling pressure intensifying during the day. The benchmark Nifty 50 index plunged 0.69% to 16,103.55 by 2:30 PM IST, with most of the sectoral indices trading in the red zone. 

Although the market breadth is pointing to a firm bear’s grip in today’s session, sugar stocks are especially having a rough day. A news flash from Bloomberg reported that the government of India is looking to curb sugar exports from the country. The move comes after the government put a ban on the export of wheat .

Sugar stocks have gone for a rough ride amid the government’s decision to ban sugar export. Soon after the news break, some sugar stocks hit a lower circuit in today’s session. Let us have a look at three stocks that are showing more pain for investors.

Dhampur Sugar Mills

Dhampur Sugar Mills Ltd (NS: DAMS ) has been one of the worst-performing sugar stocks in the recent past. The stock has fallen over 56% from its 52-week high of INR 584.5, in a matter of just 31 trading sessions.
