Three cement manufacturing plants to come up in Prayagraj

Prayagraj,Dec 31 (KNN) The Prayagraj district of Uttar Pradesh is all set to get three cement manufacturing plants, informed officials.

The region of Prayagraj is on the path of becoming a cement manufacturing hub soon. The district, which already has two cement manufacturing plants, will now get three more plants,they said.


As per reports, the three cement plants are set to come up in the Shankragarh area where the land has been identified for the plants to be set up by three separate private firms.

Presently, the district has two such plants in operation. This includes a cement blending plant of 6.6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of Jaypee Group at Sadwa and another of Ulta Tech Cement that has a 2MTPA plant at Bara.

The Uttar Pradesh government recently signed an agreement with Cement Ltd to setup a a clinker grinding unit having a capacity of 2.50 MTPA with an investment of Rs 400 crore in the Bara area. The firm is already in the process of purchasing land,” said a senior official of the Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Authority (UPSIDA).

KJS cement and Eco cement Ltd have also kick-started the process of setting up plants in the Trans-Yamuna region of Prayagraj.

KJS Cement has kick-started the process of setting up a 2 MTPA plant in Meja while Eco Cement Ltd too has begun the process of setting up a 4 MTPA clinker grinding plant at Lakhanpur at Bara over 25.829 hectares of land.

All three new players have also applied to the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board (UPPCB) seeking no-objection certificates for setting up plants at the identified sites.

“We had sought objections to setting up plants. There is no opposition to the projects from the locals. Now the three firms would need to attain environmental clearances before setting up the plants,” said RK Singh, regional officer, UPPCB, Prayagraj.  (KNN Bureau)
