India: UltraTech’s plan for Bokaro plant moves forward
Published: 10 August 2016


UltraTech Cement’s project to build a new 1.5Mta plant at Bokaro in Jharkhand has moved a step closer to realisation after the district authorities gave it their support, the Times of India reports.

Rai Mahimapat Ray, managing director of the Bokaro Industrial Area Development Authority, said: "We discussed the additional land requirements for a railway siding, levelling of the allotted 50-acre plot, availability of slag and other raw materials locally and formalities for environmental clearance. We have extended all possible help to company officials”.

The city of Bokaro is home to two steel plants, both of whom have reportedly responded positively to the possibility of an UltraTech plant.
