Birla Corporation plans to ramp up its cement production capacity to 15 mn tonne in the next four years. With this increase in production capacity, the company will be among the top 10 cement producers in the country. The company, which had signed an MoU with Assam Mineral Development Corporation (AMDC) for setting up a plant there, is waiting for the state agency to get the limestone mining lease, after which a JV company will be formed. The plant will have 1 mn tonne capacity, which will be set up with a capital expenditure of Rs 600 crore.
