Mandatorily Submission of Chemical/Petrochemical Data on ChemIndia Portal: An Initiative by Govt. of India to Develop the Chemical Inventory of India

Chemical data submission is now mandatory for India chemicals and petrochemicals units. Relevant companies should register on the portal and designate an unit operator to submit data online as per the Schedule.

Over the past year, the Department of Chemical & Petrochemical (DCPC) has been diligently working towards making the ChemIndia portal a mandatory platform for chemical data submission, and its inclusion in the gazette signifies the official endorsement and enforcement of this initiative.


In accordance with the Collection of Statistics Act of 2008, the Department of Chemical and Petrochemical published an official notification in the Indian Gazette on February 27, 2024, notifying registered chemical and petrochemical units in India that they must begin submitting chemical data on a monthly basis as of that date.

The successful launch and gazetting of the ChemIndia portal represent a significant step forward in India's journey towards establishing a robust and data-driven regulatory ecosystem for the chemical sector. This milestone underscores the government's proactive approach to promoting responsible and sustainable chemical management practices, which will have far-reaching benefits for public health, environmental protection, and economic development.

The ChemIndia Webportal is designated to facilitate the collection, compilation, and analysis of real-time data from registered chemical and petrochemical industries/units. The collected statistics will encompass a comprehensive array of information including Production Quantity, Installed Capacity, Import, Export, Sales, and associated data. These statistics are crucial for the generation of the monthly Index of Industrial Production (IIP). DCPC will also utilize this data for policy development. 

Data submission must adhere to the details outlined in the provided Schedule.
