Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Tuesday took to twitter to thank Union commerce and industries minister Piyush Goyal for considering his request to restart the project.
“Thank CIM Shri @PiyushGoyal for acceding to my request to re-start the project for up-gradation of infrastructure at Angul Aluminium Park in Odisha. The decision is another testimony of Hon. PM Shri @narendramodi’s commitment for the development of Odisha and its people,” tweeted Dharmendra.

The Union petroleum minister said with renewed focus on ironing out bottlenecks to ensure expeditious completion of the project, the Angul Aluminium Park project, a JV between @NALCO_India and @idco_odisha is expected to be completed by July 2020.
The project is being developed with a cost of Rs 99.60 crore including a central grant of Rs 33.44 crore. The proposed facility spread over an area of 223 acres, will be a major infrastructure boost for the Aluminium downstream industries.
In December last year, Dharmendra had written a letter to Goyal seeking his personal intervention to restart the project and for speedy completion of the project.
Dharmednra’s letter came in the wake of the decision of the apex committee of Modified Industrial Infrastructure Upgradation Scheme (MIIUS) to drop the project citing slow progress.
