Some highlights of my address at FAI conference

1. Direct benefit transfer will be rolled out in the entire country from April 2018

2. Fertilizer subsidies have reduced to 23,000 Cr from 44,000 Cr left by the UPA Govt.

3. Will impress upon both FM Shri Arun Jaitley and PM Shri Narendra Modi to clear this back log of subsidies also asap.

4 On the doubling of farm income I believe that the fertiliser industry is a critical instrument towards this goal.


Three major policy announcements on the fertilizer industry front

1. GST rates on Ammonia to be reduced soon

2. Fixed cost to be reworked for strengthening industry

3. Energy norms to be reworked for the growth of Fertilizer industry
