UltraTech Cement is reportedly in talks to buy further cement assets from Jaiprakash Associates, two sources with knowledge of the matter have told local press.

The talks are centred on UltraTech acquiring Jaiprakash’s Rewa complex in Madhya Pradesh, to help the latter company reduce its debt burden.

Last year, UltraTech agreed to buy Jaiprakash’s cement assets in Gujarat which have a cement capacity of 4.8Mt.
