India Cements gets approval for expansion
Jun, 19 2012
(India) -- India Cements, South India's largest cement maker by volume, has received approval from the environment ministry to expand capacities at its two cement plants.
The company sought the Terms of Reference (TOR) approval for expanding capacities at its Dalavoi and Sankari cement works in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
The green ministry approved the TRO of India Cements on April 25 and April 26 which will enable the company to carry out further steps for expanding capacities.
However, the company officials said that nothing has been finalised regarding the expansion projects of the two plants.
"We are getting the required approvals in advance. Nothing is on the board. We want to be ready and when there is a need we should not be seen as waiting for regulatory approvals," officials said.
India Cements has seven cement facilities, including two grinding plants, spread across the Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
