It is likely to complete by this year end," Wonder Cement executive director Jagdish Chandra Toshniwal told the Press Trust of India.

The company has ambitious plans to further expand the current capacity to 10Mta by setting up third production line at a cost of INR1600 crore in next five years period, he said.

The project will be funded through internal accrual of INR300 crore, promoters' contribution of INR500 crore and debt of around INR2400 crore, Toshniwal said.
