We are excited to invest in this highly attractive market to further strengthen our footprint and to reinforce our leading building materials position in India.”

The new plant is being set up by the group’s subsidiary Ambuja Cement and it will have a clinker capacity of 3.1 million tonnes per year.

The commissioning of the plant is expected for the second half of 2020.
