The market selling price of iodized salt ranges from Rs. 4.00 – Rs. 14.00 per kg depending upon the variety, quality and packing material used.
 
The estimated average annual production of salt in the world is about 260 million ton (2600 lakh  ton).  During 2011-12, India produced 221.79 lakh ton of salt which was 8.53 percent of the estimated annual production of salt in the world.
 
The Ministry monitors the overall development of salt industry, through the Salt Commissioner’s Office (SCO), including planning, facilitating production of salt through technology upgradation and conducting training programmes for salt workers.  SCO, in collaboration with the State Governments, has established Model Salt Farms in Rajasthan and Odisha, and sanctioned the third Model Salt Farm in Tamil Nadu recently.  Besides, this, the Central Governments grants financial assistance to supplement the efforts of the State Governments, salt industry and manufacturers in conducting welfare activities for salt workers.
