News Daily Digital Desk: The price of production of chemical fertilizers is increasing in the international market. In this situation, chemical fertilizer companies started raising the price of fertilizer in the Indian market. But the central government has asked companies to sell urea-free fertilizer at last year’s price. The center announced the decision on Friday. Fertilizer companies have reportedly accepted the decision.
The central government has lifted control over the prices of urea-free fertilizers such as di-ammonium phosphate (DAP), muriate of potash (MOP) and NPK. The companies fix the price. The government subsidizes a certain amount to keep prices low. But the price of these fertilizers has started to rise in the international market. Even in this situation, the central government has issued this directive keeping an eye on the price in the Indian market so that it does not rise. Earlier, a high-level meeting was held in New Delhi on Thursday.

State Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Mansukh Mandavia said the government’s decision was approved by the fertilizer companies. So farmers will get these fertilizers in the open market at the previous price. Earlier, various companies had increased the price of this fertilizer from Tk 1,200 to Tk 1,800 per bag. But he also said that the fertilizer will be sold at the old price. Apart from various companies, Fertilizer Co-operative IFFCO has also informed that 11.26 lakh tonnes of the old stock of fertilizer will be sold at a price of Tk 1,200 per sack.
