Minister of State (MoS) in the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilisers Sh. Mansukh L. Mandaviya has conveyed that the Department of Fertilisers is mandated to provide all subsidised chemical fertilisers to the States/UTs as per requirement projected by the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation & Farmers Welfare (DAC&FW) in consultation with States. In order to meet the gap between domestic demand and indigenous production, urea is imported. In the year 2015-16, domestic production of urea was the highest ever. Import is going to reduce gradually as production of urea increases.
The details of annual requirement/demand, production and import of major fertilisers during the last three years are given below:-
