Indian Ceramic City Gets Re-appraised

The Ceramic City proposal, in the cold storage for several years, is being revived with the Indian Ceramic Society (InCerS) deciding to form a core committee to pursue it before the authorities.

As a first step, a dele-gation led by former Chairman-cum-Managing Director of Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited Y. Siva Sagar Rao will meet Minister for Infrastructure and Investment Ganta Srinivasa Rao to prepare a roadmap to revive the dream of developing a cluster of cer-amic industries – the first Ceramic City of South India near Visakhapatnam. After a survey by AP Industrial Infrastructure Corporation, 150 to 200 acres of suitable land was identified at Kothavalasa, about 35 km from here in 2004. At that time, an investment of INR 2000 million was mooted. As sourcing of raw material like clay, bauxite and limestone is easy, experts say a Ceramic City near Visakhapatnam will have a great future. Fly-ash and slag generated by Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited’s Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, NTPC Simhadri Super Thermal Power Station and other local industries will also help produce wealth from waste by entrepreneurs setting up units in Ceramic City.
