India: State-owned Visakhapatnam Steel Plant may use available land at its steel plant in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh to establish a slag cement plant. The Hindu newspaper has reported that the Indian Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has decided to privatise the public sector unit. The state government opposes the decision and has proposed a merger with the National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) instead. This would integrate Visakhapatnam Steel Plant within the management chain of other resources used in cement production.
