Search News

THE Fertilizer Association of India has moved the Supreme Court seeking permission to intervene as a contesting party in the RIL-RNRL KG basin gas dispute case.

   The national body representing fertiliser manufacturers in the country—public, private and cooperative sectors—moved the court seeking protection of the public interest.

   The association in its application has contested the MoU signed in 2005 between the Ambanis on sharing of the KG gas saying it affects public interest.
 
   It “not just overrides the settled priority government policies on allocation of gas and price but deals with the national resource as its personal property contrary to the Constitutional injunction under Article 297...”, said association in its application.
   Stating that any decision in the ongoing gas dispute is bound to affect the priority sector, the fertiliser body further said that “priority” status had been given to the sector by the Gas Utilisation Policy of 2008.

   “The Gas Utilisation Policy of 2008 has been adversely given a go by due to private arrangement between the two parties ...,” said association in its application.

   The case is schedule to come up for hearing before a three-judge bench on September 1.
