30 June 2023, New Delhi: Setting up and revival of 6 urea production units at Chambal Fertilizer in Kota, Rajasthan; Matix Ltd. in Panagarh, West Bengal; Ramagundam in Telangana and Gorakhpur, Sindri in Jharkhand and Barauni in Bihar since 2018 is helping to make the country self-reliant in terms of urea production and availability, said the Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs (CCEA).

Indigenous production of urea has increased from the level of 225 LMT during 2014-15, to 250 LMT during 2021-22. In 2022-23, production capacity has increased to 284 LMT. These along with Nano Urea Plants will reduce current import dependency on urea and will make India self-sufficient by 2025- 26.
