Reliance Cement plans a cement plant in West Bengal

(India)  —  Reliance Cement Company Limited (RCCL), a part of Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, is planning to set up a 3-million-tonne plant at Raghunathpur in Purulia district in the State of West Bengal.

Reliance Cement plans to invest Rs 500 Crore in the project.

However, Reliance did not comment on the nature of the project.

The new project at Bengal is the third project that the company has
launched after it declared its expansion plan to boost its production to 50 million tonnes per annum in the long run.

The first two projects of the company of 5 mtpa each would come up in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. The company has also secured limestone-mining licences at Satna in Madhya Pradesh in 2008.

Other leading cement firms of India, ACC and UltraTech, have also expressed their interest in setting up plants in Bengal. Both ACC and UltraTech are planning to set up 2-million-tonne plants in Bengal and both the projects involve an investment of Rs 600 crore each.

The cement companies are investing in Bengal at a time when the demand for cement in Bengal is most likely to grow. With the state government of Bengal investing in the development of infrastructure in the state, the demand for cement in this region will increase.
