(i) The saga of Indian Potash Limited began with the vision and hard work of a few dedicated people in the early fifties. Prior to 1950, the use of Potash was sporadic, almost insignificant, and demographically confined to a few southern states. Potash was unknown to Indian farmers and by the dedicated fieldwork there was the acceptance of potash across India and its success story is considered one of the most remarkable sagas in annals of the Indian fertilizer industry.
(ii) In light of the above, Indian Potash Limited was incorporated under the Indian Companies Act with the objective of promoting balanced use of Potash. Indian Potash is India’s largest importer of Potash and has warehouses at all the major ports of India. The company has a PAN India dealership network to distribute Potash to the farmers.
