Welcome to the Deccan Sugar Technologists' Association, Pune [India]
The association was established in the year 1936 under able guidance of Seth Lalchand Hirachand, who was closely associated with Sugar Industry. In those days, machinery for sugar plants used to be imported and it was a great task to understand and operate the sugar plant and machinery.
