Soybean oil productions in India is a considerable amount of more than ten million tons. According to the global soybean oil production data of 2018, India is the 6th producer of soybean oil. The global harvested hectares compared to the world of land cultivated in soybean plantation is around nine per cent which is a considerable share. In India, the central part of the country is where most of the soybean is sowed and cultivated. The cultivation occurs in the following states of Andra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

In India, the extraction of soybean oil is lower than the demand. The lower production is caused by the effect of drought in some parts of the country. The soybean crop is affected by drought thus the low yield. The problem is adverse as most small-scale farmers do not practice proper irrigation. Therefore they are more affected by drought occurrence. The government do not allow large-scale foreign direct investment in the agriculture industry. The restriction has not helped the local soybean industries. It is due to the preference of local investors in farming and producing fruits and vegetables. 

The soybean seeds in India are non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism). It is a considerable advantage to the soybean oil extraction plants in the country. Most countries especially Japan love non-GMO soybean oil because it is healthier for human consumption.
