Government plans to directly transfer the fertiliser subsidy to farmers and a pilot project for the same is also being considered in 20 districts.

The Department of Fertilisers (DoF) is working on a road-map to capture the details of farmers so that sales data can be captured and subsidy can be transferred to farmers' accounts directly, according to a Parliamentary Standing Committee report.
