Birla Corp to expand in 4 states
MP Birla group´s flagship company Birla Corp will invest around Rs 950 crore with an objective to expand in four states.. The company will be set up three grinding-cum-blending units in Madhya Pradesh, one grinding unit in Bihar, one blending unit in Uttar Pradesh and another in Jharkhand. The company will have a combined capacity of 4.5 million tonnes. The company has started mechanical mining at its Chanderia mine in Rajasthan in the first week of August after it received an interim order by the Supreme Court on 29 July. Considering the mine´s close proximity to Chittorgarh Fort, the Jodhpur High Court had banned mining at the site in August 2011.
