The 9 million mtpa capacity refinery is scheduled for commissioning by August 2010. The refinery will also produce 360,000 tpa of polypropylene. The company also plans to acquire about 200 acre land.

The foundation stone for the refinery was laid in 1998, by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, after which the project remained stalled for almost 12 years due to controversies.
