Govt approves freight rates for direct movement of fertilizers

To ensure timely and adequate availability of fertilizers to farmers at affordable prices, Department of Fertilizers has approved the freight rates for the direct road movement of fertilizers up to 500 km from plant/port to block level, as recommended by the Tariff commission.

A decision has been taken to reimburse the freight cost in respect of secondary movement of fertilizers from rake point to block headquarter on monthly basis at the lower of the normative Per Tonne Per Kilometer (PTPK) rate or actual expenditure incurred by the company. The decision will ensure availability of urea in remote areas, while keeping the cost under control. It will be one of the major tools to maintain the demand and supply uniformly all over the country up to the block level and will benefit farmers during the peak demand season. 
So let’s do:
1. Department of Fertilizers has approved the freight rates for the direct road movement of fertilizers up to ________ from plant/port to block level
