Overall comment

Overall comment
the company's project comprises oleochemical production (appendant complex is located in Kakinada Sez: #3330) and supply of raw material through CF. It seems to concern CF on leased land, but there is no clear evidence (see http://www.business-standard.com/article/companies/naturol-plans-palm-plantations-overseas-108091201050_1.html: "[the company] will give about 15 per cent equity to local farmers for maintaining the farms.
