Crops like paddy, pulses and oilseeds are largely grown during this season.

The last date for submission of bids is June 21 and a decision on awarding the contract will be taken on the same day, according to the tender document posted on the company's

Prospective bidders have been asked to furnish details on the quantity of NPK complex fertilisers they wish to supply, it added.

The consignment is to be delivered at the Vizag, Kandla, Rozi and Kakinada ports between July and September, the notice
