The State-owned Hetauda Cement Industries Ltd has stopped producing cement in a lack of coal.

According to the management, the tender has already been announced for the supply of coal. The Industry has set a plan to import 10,000 metric tonnes of coal in the first and second phases.

Deputy General Manager of the Industry, Nabin Karna, claimed that the management has been making arrangements to import necessary coal and they would start producing cement within a week.

The coal would be brought from India, Indonesia, Bhutan, and Pakistan. The Industry, which was closed for a long, was again brought into operation three months ago. Although it can produce 750 tonnes of cement in a day, it has not been able to produce the cement as per its capacity due to mechanical problems and a lack of human resources.

The Industry is in a loss for the past four years. It was established with the support of the Asian Development Bank in 1977 AD.
