Cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.), a native of Eastern Brazil, was introduced to India by the Portuguese nearly five centuries ago. Cashew has become a crop of high economy and attained the status of an export-oriented commodity, earning considerable foreign exchange for the country.
Basic chemicals and their related products (petrochemicals, fertilisers, paints, varnishes, glass, perfumes, toiletries, pharmaceuticals, etc.) form a very significant part of the Indian economy and accounts for 1.20 per cent of India's GVA.
