Five new cement plants will be set up in Jaipur, the largest city of the northern Indian state of Rajasthan,  with a total production capacity of around 3Mta. The mines department has issued a letter of intent (LOI) to the firms and submitted the application for approval from the Union government.

Three LOI have been given for blocks at Chittorgarh while two are issued for the blocks in Jaisalmer district. The proposal of all the five blocks have been sent to Geological Survey of India (GSI). After receiving approval from the GSI, the companies will be able to start construction of their plants.

"There are a total of four LOI that have been given while one company has been given the old block after orders from the court. It is now up to the Union government to decide. Once permissions are granted, all firms can work at their identified places," said an official from mines department told The Times of India.
