Multiple Problems

Hansavivek INDIA CARBON complains of sudden stoppage of supplies of raw petroleum coke by Indian Oil from its Barauni refinery to the company's Budge Budge plant from January 1, 1977. As a result of this, coupled with negligible demand of calcined anthracite coal, the company had to shut down the plant on April 1 last. The management is continuing efforts to obtain supplies of raw petroleum coke for the plant from Barauni, With the coming up of two new calcination plants nearer to consumers' factories and aluminium production having gone down due to wer shortage, sales of calcined petroleum coke were lower at 56,312 tonnes against 62,803 tonnes in the previous year. The company's installed capacity is 1,02,000 tonnes. Besides, the full impact of reduction in selling price, effected at the instance of the government was felt last year.
