Govt working to liberalise Market Development Assistance Policy to promote use of alternative fertilisers, says Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya

Chemicals and Fertilisers Minister Mansukh Mandaviya today reviewed the initiatives of the Department of Fertilisers for making India Atmanirbhar in Fertilisers. Mr Mandaviya said that with the commencement of the Ramagundam plant, 12.7 lakh Metric Tonnes per annum indigenous urea production in the country has been added.

He said, this will help to realise the vision of the Prime Minister to make India self-reliant in urea production. Mr Mandaviya said, the Project will not only improve the availability of fertilisers to farmers, but also give a boost to the economy in the region besides ensuring food security to the nation.

The Minister also informed that Government is planning to liberalise Market Development Assistance Policy to promote the use of alternative fertilisers. He said, Market Development Assistance policy was earlier limited to city compost only. There were demands to expand this policy by incorporating organic waste like biogas, green manure, organic compost of rural areas, solid and liquid slurry. The Minister was apprised that the Matix Fertilisers Plant in Durgapur having a capacity of 12.7 lakh Metric Tonnes will commence soon.
