In Assam, urea is being smuggled by a group of unscrupulous merchants working in parallel with government officials. 

According to reports by Sentinel, the clique smuggles urea into a number of neighboring nations, including Myanmar. 

The mushrooming growth of plywood and other sectors in neighboring nations is driving up urea demand. Urea is used in the plywood and other industries.

A group of merchants is able to obtain urea consignments under the names of some fake farmers. 

Unscrupulous businessmen have been running such smuggling rackets from Kamrup and Kamrup Metro, as well as other districts across the State, according to an RTI response. 

According to information obtained by RTI activist Prakash Kumar Saikia, Guwahati, a segment of wholesalers and merchants from the two districts obtain allotment orders in the names of family members and false farmers, and then smuggle the urea consignment out on the black market.

According to the RTI documents, unlawful commerce has also been going on in Dhemaji and Darrang districts.

Complain lodged

Saikia said in a complaint filed with the Director of Agriculture on September 29, 2021, that a group of wholesalers and retailers in the Kamrup Metro and Kamrup districts have been smuggling away subsidised urea destined for farmers. 

In this way, they allegedly syphon off a large sum of money each month, according to Saikia’s complaint.

Saikia also said that a wholesaler from the Kamrup area is in charge of the entire transaction from a corner in Karnataka. 

He also wanted to pursue legal action against these businessmen. 

The Director of Agriculture, according to Saikia, asked the District Agriculture Officer (DAO) of Kamrup district to take the necessary steps under the Fertilizer (Control) Order, 1985, and submit an action taken report based on the DAO’s findings a month after his complaint.
