India: The state government of Uttar Pradesh has identified land on which Jaiprakash Associates will have to plant a plantation as a penalty for conducting mining in a forest. The decision follows a National Green Tribunal order in 2016, according to the Times of India newspaper. UltraTech Cement purchased the Dalla plant from Jaiprakash Associates in 2017 but it has been unable to use the site fully due to legal issues. It will be able to use the site fully once the conditions of the government proposal have been completed. Other conditions of the government deal will force Jaiprakash Associates to pay four times the actual cost of land for its acquisition and to maintain the plantation for 10 years.
