The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, will lay the founding stones for the expansion of the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd’s (BPCL) Bina Refinery, located in Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh, which has an estimated cost of Rs 50,000 crore on 14 September.
The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of Bina Refinery’s expansion project of Rs 50,000 crore and that of a new unit at Hadkal village, 70 kms from the district headquarters. Former PM Manmohan Singh inaugurated the Bina Refinery in May 2011.
The refinery’s current capacity is 7.7 million metric tonnes per annum, and the company aims to take its capacity to 11 million tonnes per annum for its crude distillation/vacuum distillation unit.
This will be PM Modi’s second visit to Sagar district in the last month. Earlier on 12 August, he laid the foundation stone for the temple-cum memorial complex of revered spiritual leader Sant Ravidas.
