About Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited

The Fertilizer Corporation Of India Limited was incorporated as early as 1961. In 1978, the company was revamped and 5 separate companies – FCI, NFL, Hindustan Fertilizer Corporation Limited, Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertililzers Limited, and Projects and Development India Limited – started operating under one umbrella. There are 4 fertilizer production centers under the Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited, scattered all over the country in the states of Jharkand, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, and Uttar Pradesh.

The Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited is one of the major public sector fertilizer companies in India, well known for its production of urea. The main producing units are situated at Sindri, Ramagundam, Talcher, and Gorakhpur. The Jodhpur Mining Organization is also controlled by the FCIL.

Apart from these, there are 9 gypsum producing units under Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited, operating through another division
known as the Jodhpur Mining Organization. Under the Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act 1985, the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction declared the Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited as a sick industry in 1992. Within the next decade, the Indian government concluded all the other fertilizer production units of this public sector fertilizer company except the Jodhpur Mining Organization, which thereafter existed as a separate unit. However, the main reasons for the loss incurred by the Fertilizer Corporation Of India Limited are higher incidence of interest, higher input costs especially regarding the power tariffs by the concerned State Electricity Boards, and higher consumption which was not reimbursed by the FCIL.
