1.7 lakh MT in 1951-52 to 249. Keeping in view the vital role played by chemical fertilizers in the success of India’s green revolution and consequent self-reliance in food-grain production. As for potash (K) since there are no viable sources/reserves in the country. This is clear from the fact that from a very modest level of 52 million MT in 1951-52. 1. the raw materials and intermediates for are largely imported.3 5 . The industry made a very humble beginning in 1906. Presently.2 The installed capacity as on 31. the annual consumption of fertilizers in nutrient terms (N. green revolution in the late sixties gave an impetus to the growth of fertilizer industry in India and the seventies and eighties then witnessed a significant addition to the fertilizer production capacity. 21 units produce DAP and complex fertilizers. Out of these.1. it provides crucial backward and forward linkages to the rest of the economy. Even for that. co-operative and private sectors. As a result. P & K).2 Growth of Fertilizer Industry 1. 1. there are 56 large size fertilizer plants in the country manufacturing a wide range of nitrogenous.09 lakh MT 2008-09. food grain production rose to about 233.1. making India the 3rd largest fertilizer producer in the world. Besides. which was less than 1 Kg in 1951-52 has risen to the level of 128. has increased from 0. 1.2 1.88 million MT in 2008-09. Successive five-year plan have laid stress on self-sufficiency and self-reliance in food grains production and concerted efforts in this direction have resulted in substantial increase in agriculture production and productivity. the country has achieved near self-sufficiency in production capacity of urea with the result that India could substantially manage its requirement of nitrogenous fertilizers through the indigenous industry. provides sustenance to two-thirds of our population.Chapter-1 1. In India’s success in agriculture sector. (FACT) at Cochin in Kerala and the Fertilizers Corporation of India (FCI) in Sindri in Bihar (now Jharkhand) were the first large sized fertilizer plants set up in the forties and fifties with a view to establish an industrial base to achieve self-sufficiency in food-grains. 30 (as on date 28 are functioning) units produce urea. when the first manufacturing unit of Single Super Phosphate (SSP) was set up in Ranipet near Chennai with an annual capacity of 6000 MT.1 Introduction Agriculture which accounts for one fifth of GDP.2.61 lakh MT of nitrogen of capacity of which the non functional capacity is estimated as 10. Subsequently.2009 has reached a level of 120.1 1. As of now. not only in terms of meeting total requirement of food grains but also generating exportable surpluses the significant role played by chemical fertilizers is well recognized and established.2. its entire requirement is met through imports. The Fertilizer & Chemicals Travancore of India Ltd. nearly 50% of domestic requirement is met through indigenous production. the Government of India has been consistently pursuing policies conducive to increased availability and consumption of fertilizers in the country.52 lakh MT and 56.60 Kg (estimated) in 2008-09.03.59 lakh MT of phosphatic nutrient. The rapid build-up of fertilizer production capacity in the country has been achieved as a result of a favourable policy environment facilitating large investments in the public.1. while per hectare consumption of fertilizers. phosphatic and complex fertilizers. In case of phospatic fertilizers.

(Andhra Pradesh).00 1985. nitrogenous fertilizer plants were mainly based on naphtha as feedstock.2009. In the absence of commercially exploitable potash sources in the country. a number of gas based ammonia-urea plants have been set up since 6 . 1.

As the usage of gas increased and its available supply dwindled.03. domestic production based on indigenous / imported intermediates. Under the new pricing regime for urea units applicable since 01. indigenous raw materials are available mainly for nitrogenous fertilizers. and third. import of finished fertilizers. In 1980.04. however. Prior to 1980.2. NUTRIENT-WISE INSTALLED CAPACITY OF FERTILIZER MANUFACTURING UNITS AS ON 31. with natural gas becoming available from offshore Bombay High and South Basin. economically efficient units are being permitted to produce beyond their reassessed capacity to substitute/ minimize imports.13 56. viz. is very sensitive to demand supply scenario.2002 due to technical and financial nonviability. No.f.59 Percentage Share N 29. phosphate and potash. Besides. a number of expansion projects came up in the last few years with dual feed facility using both naphtha and gas. marginal provision through imports could be used to the country’s strategic advantage. (N. is also being explored by various fertilizer companies in India.4.0 26.65 30. This is also desirable as the international market. Indigenous rock phosphate supplies meet only 5-10% of the total requirement of P2O5. the paucity of domestic raw material has been a constraint in the attainment of self-sufficiency in the country. 1. been closed by Government w.5 units produce low analysis straight nitrogenous fertilizers and the remaining 9 manufacture ammonium sulphate as byproduct.13 35. two coal-based plants were set up for the first time in the country at Talcher. The Government’s policy has hence aimed at achieving the maximum possible degree of self-sufficiency in the production of nitrogenous fertilizers based on utilisation of indigenous feedstock.73 100. However. In case of phosphates.33 17.3. there are about 72 medium and small-scale units in operation producing SSP.27 44. the entire demand of potassic fertilizers for direct application as well as for production of complex fertilizers is met through imports.08 100.4. Sr. These coal based plants have.94 120.3. A policy has therefore been adopted which involves mix of three options. Feasibility of making available Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to meet the demand of existing fertilizer plant and/or for their expansion projects along with the possibility for utilising newly discovered gas reserves. 1. domestic production based on indigenous/ imported rock phosphate.61 P 4. 1.3. 1. for securing additional indigenous supply of urea. especially in case of urea. Given the volatility in international market for fertilizers in general and urea market in particular.69 53. A number of fuel oil/LSHS based ammonia-urea plants were also set up during 1978 to 1982.3.P&K) required for various crops.00 P 7. During 2008-09 roughly 65% of the requirement of phosphatic fertilizers was met through the first two options.3. (Orissa) and Ramagundam.98 31.2003. viz.27 62. The sector-wise installed capacity is given in the table below: SECTOR-WISE. imported sulphur and ammonia.

The increase in rate of subsidy on fertilizers combined with increase in consumption of fertilizers has led to a substantial increase in requirement of subsidy. the Government has completely kept the farmers insulated from this increase in cost and have increased the subsidy allocations to meet the consumption needs of the farmer at subsidized level of prices.. The selling price of urea. naphtha. sulphur.1. The details of fertilizer subsidy over the last few years are as below:- 1. phosphoric acid.4. necessitating constant upward revision in the retention prices. gas. The difference between the normative delivered cost at farm gate level and the notified selling prices is paid as subsidy to manufacturers/importers on sale of fertilizers to the farmers at the subsidized prices.4 1. The selling prices as notified by Government for the subsidized fertilizers are much lower than the normative delivered cost of these fertilizers at farm gate level. 1981 and July 1991. 1991 after a gap of a decade.4. The cost of various inputs / utilities. went up significantly during the eighties. electricity. The prices of urea were again revised in February 2002 by 5% FERTILIZER SUBSIDY (Rs.1 Fertilizer Subsidy The subsidy on fertilizers is passed on to the farmers in the form of subsidized MRPs. ammonia. rock phosphate. In spite of increase in cost of fertilizers. such as coal.2 The steady increase in fertilizer subsidies over the years has largely been the result of increasing production / consumption and increases in the costs of inputs of indigenous fertilizers and prices of imported fertilizers from time to time. The selling prices of fertilizers to the farmers. The gas-based fertilizer units commissioned during this period also involved higher capital investment per tonne of installed capacity.97. however.4. The subsidy on fertilizers has been increased sharply over the last few years.2. etc. The Government effected an increase of 30% in the issue prices of fertilizers in August. as also the cost of transportation.3 1. which was reduced by 10% in August 1992. in Crores) Years Subsidy Released Total subsidy disbursed Total (P&K) 3225 3326 5142 6550 10598 17134 65555 31798 11013 11835 16128 18299 25952 40338 99456 57056 2002 3372 5914 8788 5000 17158 17498 20841 28826 36550 111614 74214 Liabilities Carryover to next year Net incidence of subsidy Urea 2002-03 2003-04 2004-05 2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 2008-09 2009-10* *Estimated 7788 8509 10986 11749 15354 23204 33901 25258 Indigenous Imported (P&K) (P&K) 2488 2606 3977 4500 6648 10334 32957 15447 737 720 1165 2050 3950 6800 32598 16351 7 . remained almost at the same level between July. was revised upwards by 20% in June 1994 followed by another increase by 10% with effect from 21.

The selling price of subsidized fertilizers will be determined on the basis of the nutrients contained therein 6. Similarly production from expansion and revival (brownfield) units that come about within five years of notification of the new policy would qualify for dispensation provided in the policy. It has been further decided to fix the farmgate price of nutrients at the level of their existing price in straight fertilizers viz. If the production does not come through within the stipulated time period. DAP.1 32 . such brownfield projects will be treated similar to a Greenfield projects wherein price will be decided through limited bidding options. Time period for proposed investment policy: Only those revamp projects which start production of additional capacities within four years of notification of the new policy would qualify for the dispensation recommended above. Nutrient based pricing regime for all subsidized fertilizers. To ensure easy availability of fertilizers in all parts of the country.6. This will lead to significant reduction in existing Maximum Retail Prices (MRPs) of complex fertilizers. the manufacturers are allowed to charge up to 10% above MRP of Urea and SSP respectively. 6. the price of nutrients in complex fertilizers were higher than the price of same nutrients in other straight fertilizers like Urea. Under this regime. The nutrient based pricing will lead to parity in price of complex fertilizers with other straight fertilizers and.2 Under existing pricing regime.7 Policy for uniform freight subsidy on all fertilizers under the fertilizer subsidy regime. This led to comparatively higher usage of straight fertilizers vis-à-vis complex fertilizers. Keeping in view the interests of the farmers and to promote balanced use of fertilizers. The Nutrient Based Subsidy regime is under consideration of Group of Ministers constituted to examine the nutrient based subsidy policy and measures for rationalization of fertilizer subsidy disbursement.

wherein freight subsidy will be paid separately on receipt of all subsidized fertilizers in the districts/blocks. 6. Department of Agriculture & Cooperation (DAC) introduced a scheme of concession on decontrolled P & K fertilizers in 1992-93 on adhoc basis. Government of India decontrolled Phosphatic and Potassic (P&K) fertilizers with effect from 25th August 1992 on the recommendations of Joint Parliamentary Committee. rail freight and road freight.4 6. The policy for New Pricing Scheme (Stage – III) notified on 8th March 2007 committed Capital Subsidy for FO/LSHS based units through a separate Scheme to be notified in consultation with Department of Expenditure (DOE) and completion of conversion within three years. The units are in regular touch with gas suppliers for confirm commitment towards supply of gas.8. In order to cushion the impact of increase in prices of the decontrolled P & K fertilizers and promote balanced usage of NPK nutrients. The rail freight will be paid on actual. The issue of notification of a scheme for Capital Assistance towards FO/ LSHS conversion was considered by the Department in consultation with DOE and it was decided to finalise a scheme based on the deferred payment of project cost linked to production of urea post conversion. The Concession Scheme initially covered Di-ammonium 6. Under New Pricing Policy Stage-III. Afterwards. 6.3 The 4 FO/LHS based units have already started work on conversion of units to gas. This exercised an adverse impact on the demand and consumption of the P&K fertilizers.8 6.7. The policy for conversion subsidy towards conversion of FO/LSHS projects provides for reimbursement of project cost as approved by Public Investment Board (PIB) through a special fixed cost component and retention of energy savings for five years after conversion to Natural Gas. Proposal of NFL has been submitted to CCEA for clearing the investment for the projects while GNVFC is initiating actions for their conversion project. Accordingly. PIB agreed to the above proposals for conversion in the meetings held on 5th and 13th November. a separate scheme for conversion of FO/LSHS units to gas was finalized and notified on 6th March 2009.1. The proposals for conversion of FO/LSHS plants of NFL and GNVFC were submitted to PIB for their consideration.Fertilizers has notified on 17th July 2008 a uniform freight subsidy regime for all subsidized fertilizers. namely.
