Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated the Sindri fertilizer factory yesterday. Modi laid the foundation stone of this plant back in 2018, and now the factory commenced operations. This is going open up thousands of new job opportunities for the youth of Bharat and Jharkhand.

With the launch of this fertilizer factory, Bharat takes a significant stride towards self-reliance. Annually, Bharat requires approximately 360 lakh metric tonnes of urea. In 2014, India's urea production stood at 225 lakh metric tonnes and today, it stands at 310 lakh metric tonnes.

“In the last 10 years, the Govt. has revived fertilizer plants in Ramagundam, Gorakhpur, and Barauni. Today, Sindri has joined this list as well. The Talcher Fertilizer Plant is also slated to commence operations in the next 1.5 years, and I am confident that I will have the honour of inaugurating it as well. Collectively, these five plants will enable Bharat to produce over 60 lakh metric tonnes of urea, propelling the nation swiftly towards self-reliance in this crucial area. This achievement will not only save foreign exchange but also channel funds towards the benefit of farmers,” Modi said.
