India spends more than Rs. 1 lakh Crores on the fertilizer subsidy, the second highest subsidy after food. There’s broad agreement among all stakeholders, even among those with competing interests, that a change in the fertilizer subsidy policy is inevitable. However, there are diverse viewpoints and ideas on the path forward.
Any path forward will have ramifications on incomes of millions of farmers, agricultural output, the economy and government finances. Finding a solution to such a ‘wicked’ problem requires people who hold different viewpoints and analyses to go beyond debating each other, to engage in a deeper, respectful exercise of understanding each other and put their minds together to co-create a solution.
