India: Dalmia in Bengal
Published: 30 June 2016


Dalmia Bharat is planning to further increase its presence in Bengal, India. The company has been present in the region for the last two years through its cement unit near Salboni. The unit was set up through OCL India Ltd, an associate company.

Director and CEO of OCL India, Amandeep Gupta, said Dalmia may look for a second plant in the state. The group has already taken on a lease on a grinding unit in Siliguri to cater to north Bengal. Mr Gupta said on the matter, “the market in east as well as Bengal is growing at a higher rate than national average. Here (Bengal), we have had a very good first year. We may look for expansion in future.”
