Ambuja Cements, part of Adani Group, has proposed to establish a cement grinding unit with an investment of ₹1,000 crore in Motia Village of Godda district in Jharkhand, post requisite approvals, with a capacity of 4.0 MTPA.

The project is planned in proximity to Adani Power (Jharkhand) Limited, as part of a comprehensive approach to disposing of fly ash in an environmentally safe manner and contributing to the circular economy, the company has said in its statement.

We believe that Jharkhand holds immense potential in terms of resources, infrastructure, and skilled manpower, making it an ideal location for this project. We look forward to working closely with the state to ensure the successful implementation of this project.”
