Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

According to a report this past week by The Statesmen, New Delhi, India, the country's central government will make "all efforts" to revive the pulp and paper mill in the northeastern state of Nagaland. The newspaper cited quotes by Union Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Minister Anant Geete from this past Friday (June 17).
"We have decided to revive the mill. We will do whatever possible to set up an adequate number of industries in the Northeastern region," he told reporters. "Growth of industries and development of infrastructure in the resource rich northeastern region is a priority of the central government," Geete added.
The government has promised to sanction Rs 30 crore to Hindustan Paper Corp., out of which Rs 12 crore will be made available to Nagaland Pulp and Paper Co. or Tuli Paper Mill, with the goal to ultimately revive production.
Non-availability of adequate power and law and order issues had previously affected the ability to maintain production at the mill.
