Welspun Corp Limited has informed the Exchange regarding As previously announced by us on 29th October 2020, given the industry prospects and synergies with our existing business, we are setting up a Greenfield facility at Anjar to enter the Ductile Iron (DI) Pipe business.

Moreover, the Jal Jeevan Mission (Urban) has also been announced. The outlay for this is INR 2.87 trillion and it will be implemented over the next 5 years. Tap water connection to 2.86 crore urban households and liquid waste management in 500 cities has been envisaged as part of this scheme. Increased spending by state governments and municipal corporations is also expected to improve accessibility of drinking water supply across the country. Considering the expected demand, we have decided to increase the capacity for DI Pipes to 400 KMTPA (from earlier proposed 250 KMPTA) and add DI Fittings to the product range. This would bring the total project cost to INR 1,550 cr (plus soft cost) from the earlier planned INR 1,250 cr (plus soft cost). The project is being funded through a combination of internal accruals and debt. There are no changes in the timelines and the project is expected to be commissioned by April 2022. .
