Ramco Cement has proposed to set up cement factory at Kilimigundla village in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh with an investment outlay of Rs 1500 crore. The total investment in the cement plant and related infrastructure could go up to Rs 3000 crore, as it requires a rail line of about 20 km to facilitate transport.
In this regard, the company has requested the State Chief Minister to provide necessary land to develop the plant and also facilitate necessary clearances to develop the rail line as this would be useful for other projects in the area.
Meanwhile, the Ramco indicated that a new facility set up near Visakhapatnam would also be ready for commissioning by October 15 this year.
