The year was 1919. It market not only the birth of Birla jute man id factoringcompany but also beginning of the Birla industrial in India. The early years saw the company grows steadily underthe guidance of ghan shyam das Birla. His strong sense of ghanshyam das enterprise and clean sighted vision where passed onword to his nephew mahadev Prasad. It was m.p. Birla who gave shape to the world of Birlacorporation limited. The helped transformed it from amanufacturer of jute. Goods to a leading multiproductcorporation with widespread activities today Birla corporationlimited ranks amount the top so company in the country withproducts ranges from jute and synthesis yarn to cement calciumcarbide.Industrial gasless an linoleum.
SAINT CEMENT WORKS :- In 1959 Birla corporation limited embarked on its mostsignificant new venture cement.The commissioning of sew in m.p. marked the compans entry into basic industry. This was also the Birla cement plant in thebirla group a and at the time the largest single unit in India.The years that followed brought rapid growth andmodernization new plants were ste up further a field atchittorgath Rajasthem and Durgapur (west bangal) capicitieswere alos steadily increased sing state of the art Technology.Important landmarks for the campany were the 2500 TDP birlavikas plant setup at satna in 1982 and a new dry process plantat chittorgarh commissioned in 1986 in 1988. the workd bankunder its program of energy conservation finaced the setting upof a modern dry process plant in satna.The next phase of modenisation is already underway. Itscompletion will increase the companys total cement companyfrom three million tonesper annum to a projected four milliontones by 1997. Birla corporation limited has indeed set new standards inefficiency of opration and guality of cement more importantly it
has always taken the lead in the critical areas of energyconservation and pollution control.

Cement industry in IndiaAn overview – Cement industry in India has been in operationsince 1917 and considered now a days as care infrastructureindustry. India Is one of the five largest producer of cement in theworld the other four being U.S.A. Russia china and japan.Dependence on government – The infrastructure support for cementmanufacturing viz power cool and railway accounting for 55-60%of the cost for manufacturing and selling cement are controlledby the government the cement industry is also dependent onrailway for cool and cement. Transprolation in ficial 1997 44% of cement was ficial1997 44% of cement was transported though railway.
It is common for the S.E.B.S. of large cement producingstates like m.p. Andhra Pradesh rajasthan and Karnataka toimpose power out of more than 35-40 percent for 6-8 monthsduring a year.Poar capacity utillisation – Cement industry in India has been too muchcorporation two rapidily put the capacity utilisution has beenonly orenrend 77% to 88% on the other hand the industry hasbeen growing on average at the rate is expected further to riseto 8% to 9 % be a wide gap between supply and the projecteddemenad for cement.Higher housing demand – The demand for housing will increase because ofan increase in purch sing power of in dividuales the shortage ofdwelling units was estimated at appro innately 20.6 million inthe rewal areas and 10.h million units in the urbon areas in 1999.
Infarasturucture – We expeed higher investment to materiallise inirrigation transport power plants by NCER on Indian inbrastructure. India will require in vestment to the tune of 115-130 billion over the next five year in power roads partstelecemanunication and urben utilities.Current treands – At though domestic cement demand has frow at5.3 percent in the first help of ficeal 1988 we expect inimprovement in demond growth rat to result in a demand growthof 6 persent in fical 2002.Considetring the flowing – 1 higher purchasing power in samiurben and ruralareas due to record agriculture production in fisical 2000.
