India’s second-largest cement maker by capacity, ACC, has shut its plant at Ghugus in the western Maharashtra state, the Times of India newspaper reported Friday, without citing any source.

The move comes after the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board asked the company to shut down the plant for violation of pollution control rules, the newspaper said.

The plant has a production capacity of 0.9Mta and was commissioned in 1976, the newspaper added.
