Minister for Industries and Commerce, SS Slathia, today said the production capacity of the government-owned cement plant at Khrew is being increased from 600tpd to 1200tpd to bridge the demand-supply gap.

Speaking at the Annual General Meeting of the Jammu and Kashmir Cements Ltd here yesterday, Slathia, who is also the chairman of the company, said despite having huge deposits of high quality limestone, the state imports huge quantity of cement from other states to meet its requirement.

The minister said the local cement plants need to be encouraged to fill the wide demand-supply gap of cement.
