Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, fertilizer advisory forum (FAF) member and Indian Kisan Union national president Ram Kumar Walia said that the government of India had increased its share on subsidy on DAP fertilizer by 140 per cent.
With this, even in case of rise in international rates, a sack of DAP fertilizer will be available to the farmer at Rs 1,200 instead of Rs 2,400. Stating that DAP fertilizer is the most used in its category for various crops, he said that the historic decision by the centre will benefit farmers in Uttarakhand and across India.
Walia further said that the Centre has resumed talks with those agitating against the farm laws and the deliberations will achieve positive results.
