Our experience in working in the state has been wonderful in terms of the support and cooperation from all the government bodies, the larger communities, and all the people of Assam,” Singhi said.

He further added, “This year also marks our 10th anniversary of Dalmia Bharat’s manufacturing presence in the North-East. We remain deeply committed to continuing to be a partner in the region’s economic progress and facilitate the creation of iconic infrastructure such as the Bogibeel Bridge and Dhola Sadiya Bridge etc. The North-East region has showcased a very forward-learning mindset, being one of the fastest adaptors of low-carbon cement i.e. blended cement. The penetration of Low Carbon Green Cement is in line with our vision of becoming Carbon Negative by 2040 and further intensifies our commitment towards the ‘Grey to Green’ movement.”
