Hindustan Urvarak and Rasayan Limited (HURL) has signed a Rupee Term Loan agreement for the Gorakhpur fertilizer plant. 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. HURL is currently implementing 3 urea projects at Gorakhpur, Sindri and Barauni in the eastern part of the country.

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.

These 3 plants are being built at an estimated cost of ₹ 21,000 crore. GAIL is implementing a natural gas pipeline for supplying gas to these 3 plants and the total investment by HURL and GAIL amounts to ₹ 36,000 crore.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers.
