Indian Biogas Association (IBA) Condemns Govt For Withdrawing Subsidy On Biogas Plants
on Monday condemned the government for the withdrawal of subsidy on all kinds of biogas plants, saying it will impact India’s goal of self-sufficiency in fossil fuels and affect 50 million farmers.
“Indian Biogas association condemns the government’s decision on withdrawal of subsidy /CFA of all kinds of biogas plants- all categories- small, medium and bigger.
“The decision will impact almost 50 million farmers looking for energy security and natural farming along with the government’s target of 5,000 plants under SATAT (Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation) Scheme and will jeopardize Indian dream of becoming self-sufficient in fossil fuels,” an IBA statement said.
According to the statement, the Indian biogas industry can help government reduce Rs 1.1 lakh crore imports of fossil fuels, if the industry gets the right kind of support, which is impossible to achieve without support.
