Rs 130 billion invested for reviving Talcher fertiliser plant
Rajdhani Express will make a halt in Dhenkanal railway station, Rs 130 billion will be invested for the revival of the Talcher fertiliser plant in Angul district and city gas scheme will be rolled out in 13 districts, informed Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister, during Modi’s visit to Talcher. Despite being the biggest project in the undivided Dhenkanal district in the 70s, the Talcher fertiliser plant was shut down due to the lack of modern technology and financial scarcity. The project is said to be revived by using state-of-the-art technology where gas will be produced from coal and urea fertiliser from gas and the responsibility is given to the Gas Authority of India (GAIL).
