Shrirampur is the city and a municipal council in western Maharashtra. The city got its name from the famous Ram Temple near Navasa Road. In 1950, this city got India's first co-operative sugar mill after a brief protest. Shri Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil with the help of other farmers started the co-operative protest and later got Padamshree by the Former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Due to its dry climate, the economy of the city relies a lot on sugarcane farming. It is one of the top producers of sugarcane in Maharashtra.
