Birla Corporation has resumed cement production at its Durgapur Cement plant as power has been restored after the severe Cyclone Phailin that hit eastern areas of the country earlier this month.

Power was restored on 22 October 2013 by Damodar Valley Corporation after the cyclone caused damage to high tension lines and pole structures. In a statement released on 16 October to the Bombay Stock Exchange, Birla said that it had initiated the necessary action to resume supplies together with the Damodar Valley Corporation. Cement production at the plant had been halted during the interim period.
