JSW Cement is all set to double its production capacity by March 2013, with the commissioning of two more mills that have already been installed, according to Director and Chief Executive Officer RC Sodhani.

He said the production capacity would go up to 4.8Mta at the Nandyal plant in Andhra Pradesh and with the Bellary unit, the company would have a total capacity of 5.3Mta.

The company is also in the process of setting up a slag cement plant in Bellary with an investment of INR350 crore. The company expects this facility to commission within 18 months, he said.

"We have applied for necessary clearances from the Karnataka Government and the Ministry of Environment and Forests for setting up a 4.3Mt cement plant in Gulbarga at an outlay of INR1,500 crore. But the overall plan is to take the capacity up to 20Mt by 2020," he added.
