All of these units are targeted to become operational by 2020-21, Shri Singh added.In addition to above, the Government has also decided to install a new Urea plant of 8.646 Lakh Metric Ton (LMT) per annum in the existing premises of Brahmaputra Valley Fertilizer Corporation Limited (BVFCL), which will subsequently replace the existing Namrup II (Capacity 2.40 LMT) and Namrup III (Capacity 2.70 LMT) units, the Minister added.In a written reply to a separate question in Lok Sabha today, Shri Singh informed that the total urea capacity in the country capacity after revamping of the five units at Gorakhpur, Sindri, Talcher and Ramagundam and Barauni is likely to be 304.5 LMTPA.   In addition, two plants of combined capacity of 26.4 LMTPA are also being set up/commissioned in the private sector.  This will further augment capacity to nearly 33 MMTPA.
