Navratna status for RCF soon 15.11.2014 Asian Age: Mumbai
Lavishing praise on Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers (RCF) for adopting green technologies in constructing a sewage treatment plant, Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Ananth Kumar said that RCF would be granted “Navratna” status. Laying the foundation stone of the RCF-BPCL (Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited) Sewage Treatment Plant in Mumbai, Mr Kumar welcomed RCF’s initiative under PM Narendra Modi’s “Swachcha Bharat Campaign”. The sewage treatment plant will treat 22.75 million litre of municipal sewage per day and convert it into 15 million litre of “treated water” per day at a cost of `200 crore. The project will be completed within 28 months of award of the contract. With RCF already being a Miniratna company, “Navratna” status will impart greater financial autonomy where RCF will be able to take investment decisions up to `1,000 crore. “We will give special priority to the Thal III project in Maharashtra including granting Navratna status to RCF,” said Mr Kumar. The Thal III project ...

Govt puts caveat to domestic gas supply 15.11.2014 Deccan Herald - Business
The government will consider supplying domestic gas to manufacturers of phosphatic and potassic (P&K) fertilisers once again but with some conditions. "We used to sell gas to companies manufacturing P&K fertilisers at subsidised rates. If the companies to which we used to supply gas are ready to give the same subsidy to the farmers, we will certainly consider supplying gas once again to these companies," Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers Ananth Kumar said at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the RCF-BPCL sewage treatment plant. An inter-ministerial group will be set up to consider the supply once again and if the proposal given by the companies is in favour of the farmers, we will certainly consider it, he added. Kumar said that the government is looking at making the country self-sufficient in fertiliser production so that imports can be stopped. "We plan to start six fertiliser plants across the country and the first one will be put up by RCF at Talcher in Maharashtra," Kumar said. The ...
