Cement industry in India

  • ISO 9001-2008 certificatied.
  • First in India to install vertical roller mill for cement grinding.
  • As of March 2014, total assets stood at Rs 1,728.11 crore (US$ 272.01 million).

The origin of OCL was seeded in the time that signaled India's independence. A dream unleashed. A blue print of growth was drawn. Endeavors to reconstruct economy set in. Indian industry woke up to the key challenge of self- reliance. Agriculture took a turn to modernity with construction of dams across the country. Against such a bubbling background Sjt. Jaidayalji Dalmia, an industrialist of farsighted vision set up a cement plant at Rajgangpur during 1950 - 51 at the request of government of Odisha to manufacture super grade cement for use in the construction of Hirakud dam. The plant that went on steam as Orissa cement Ltd during 1952 transformed itself into OCL India Ltd during 1996 to better reflect its multifarious activities.
