From 50 Years Ago: Long Rein for Short Run

Vol IV, No 36 september 6, 1969

Long Rein for Short Run

The incentives offered to the newsprint industry have apparently left entrepreneurs cold. Only Thapars have any firm proposal, and newspaper reports reflect Government’s apprehension that the onus of the Fourth Plan programme might therefore fall on itself. Demand for newsprint at the end of the Plan is estimated at 260,000 tonnes. Against this, the Plan aims to achieve a capacity of 165,000 tonnes. NEPA in Madhya Pradesh is expected to expand to 75,000 tonnes; Thapars’ plant in Himachal Pradesh will eventually have a capacity of 60,000 tonnes; and a public sector plant of a capacity of 75,000 tonnes is ‘under consideration’ for Piravam in Kerala.
