Assam Industries and Commerce Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary visited the Brahmaputra Valley Fertiliser Corporation Limited (BVFCL) in Namrup on Monday and assured full support for the proposed brownfield Unit-IV ammonia-urea production unit.
In a meeting with the officials of BVFCL, Patowary said the government had already taken up the matter with the Centre to bring in Unit-IV at the earliest.
“We have pursued the sanctioning of Rs 100 crore for immediate maintenance requirements for Unit-II and Unit-III with the Centre,” Patowary said.
“After being cleared by the Union finance ministry, the sanction is awaiting the Union Cabinet approval, which may take place soon,” he said.
Patowary also referred to his recent meeting with Union Chemicals and Fertilizers Minister D.V Sadananda Gowda, in which they discussed the setting up of a new ammonia-urea plant on the premises of BVFCL.
With an annual capacity of 3.9 lakh metric tonnes of urea, BVFCL, Namrup, is the only urea fertiliser manufacturing company in the eastern zone of the country comprising North East, West Bengal, Odisha and Bihar.
