According to a formal announcement, the proposed combination relates to Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd purchasing the clinker, cement, and power plants from Jaiprakash Associates Ltd and its affiliate.

A fully owned subsidiary of Dalmia Bharat Ltd. is Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd. (DBL). Cement, sugar, and refractory services are among the products and services that DBL manufactures and sells. The Dalmia Bharat Group is ultimately headed by DBL.
