Bhubaneswar: Odisha Government will provide raw material to Vedanta Aluminium through Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC) to feed its refinery plant at Lanjigarh in Kalahandi district. This was informed by the Steel and Mines Minister Prafulla Mallick on Wednesday.
The Minister said the government is taking steps to excavate bauxite from Kalarapat mines soon and the refinery can be run by sourcing bauxite from the mines through OMC.
He urged the company to continue operation by sourcing raw material from outside the state and abroad till the arrangement is made from the state.
Vedanta is running its refinery and smelter plants in the state at less capacity in absence of raw material.
