The agreement is for a loan of ₹ 5314.33 crore with a consortium of Banks led by SBI as the lead banker and Punjab National Bank, Allahabad Bank, Union Bank of India, Indian Bank, Bank of India and Canara Bank.

HURL is a joint venture company of 3 Maharana companies, NTPC, IndianOil and Coal India along with Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited and Hindustan Fertilizer and Corporation Limited.

An NTPC statement said, “These plants will have a capacity of producing 3850 million tonne per day of neem quoted urea. The commercial production is scheduled to begin from February 2021.”

“The imports are expected to become zero and farmers in eastern India will have easier access for getting timely supplies of urea for their crops,” the statement added.
