MUMBAI Feb 8 (Reuters) - India's Tata Chemicals Ltd has pending dues of 14.96 billion rupees ($281 million) from the government on account of fertiliser subsidies, its chief financial officer said, adding that delayed payments were creating liquidity problems for the company.

India controls prices of some fertilisers sold to farmers, and compensates producers through cash payments to make up for the shortfall.
