The post of CMD of NFL was lying vacant since February 2014 after the retirement of then CMD Neeru Abrol. Presently, Mishra is posted as Director Finance at State Trading Corporation (STC).
State-run NFL has five gas-based urea plants across India. They are Nangal & Bathinda in Punjab, Panipat in Haryana and two plants at Vijaipur in District Guna of Madhya Pradesh. The company is the second largest producer of urea in the country and has a total annual installed capacity of 35.68 lakh tonnes.
