Cement: the India Story

India is home to the world’s second largest Cement Industry and accounts for over 8% of the global installed capacity.


Skill, Speed, and Scale

"Skill, Speed, and Scale; all three developmental aspects envisioned by PM Modi are perfectly captured by the Budget 2019 document. The Cement Industry extends its full support in realising economic reforms through rapid growth in infrastructure across housing, rail, road, waterways and highways. The Cement Industry finds the Government’s idea of prioritising waste to energy and enabling entrepreneurship among farmers through harvesting bioenergy are very encouraging. Cement sector offers to further the circular economy practices on close partnership through Government support. The Budget balances the aspirations for growth of both business enterprise and rural India." - Mr. Mahendra Singhi, President, CMA
