Adani Cement to close two plants in Himachal Pradesh
India: Adani Cement has published its plans for the closure of two integrated cement plants in Himachal Pradesh. The Hindustan Times newspaper has reported the plants as ACC s 4.4Mt/yr Gagal cement plant in Bilaspur District and Ambuja Cements 1.6Mt/yr Darlaghat cement plant in Solan District. The management of the Gagal cement plant said that losses ensuing from high operating costs, including transport costs, are the reason behind the decision to shut down that plant. ACC employs 1000 company staff and contractors at the site, and an additional 4000 truck drivers in its cement despatch operations. 3500 truck drivers also work in delivering cement from the Darlaghat cement plant. The Gagal cement plant alone reportedly despatches 5000t/day of cement for the Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab markets. The Bilaspur District Truck Operators Society said "The transport sector of Bilaspur is heavily dependent upon the Gagal cement plant. It s the source of livelihood for thousands of people, including operators, drivers and conductors. This decision should be reconsidered in the interest of the people." It added "Most roadside restaurants and mechanics shops will also lose business. We never thought that this plant could ever stop functioning. It has been part of our landscape and economy for decades now." /Global Cement
