The plant is largely being promoted by a collaboration of local investors. Siddhartha Group holds a 35 per cent stake, the Murarka Group has a 30 per cent share and the Kediya Group owns a 17.5 per cent holding. The remaining 17.5 per cent stake is in the hands of foreign investor Uma Cement International.
