Panel submits report on linkage policy to Odisha govt

An inter-ministerial committee set up by the Odisha government submitted its report on the long-term linkage policy for supply of ore to local industries.

The state government would examine the report and may take action to boost supply of raw material to local industries.

The submission of the report prompted Vedanta Aluminium (VAL) to be optimistic about securing bauxite ore from the state itself for its alumina refinery at Lanjigarh.

VAL recently resumed operation at the refinery, which was shut for a seven-month period owing to a bauxite scarcity.

Recently, Mukesh Kumar, Chief Operating Officer of Vedanta Aluminium met the state Chief Secretary JK Mohapatra.

After the meeting, Kumar said if aluminium industries cannot survive in Odisha, having huge bauxite reserves, then they are not feasible anywhere in the country.

Presently, VAL sources bauxite for the refinery from Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat. The plant is operating at 60 per cent capacity.
