The initial 50 TPD Cement Plant at Wazeho was the first Mineral based project taken up by the corporation (during the Sixth Five Year Plan). The Plant was operated from 1992 upto 2003.

 

Due to the growing demand of cement in Nagaland as well as in the neighbouring North Eastern States, the State Government decided to go for expansion and modernization of the existing 50TPD plant capacity to 150TPD capacity by adding another 100TPD capacity at the same location. The expansion and modernization of the 150TPD Mini Cement Plant Wazeho was completed in May 2008. The plant was inaugurated on 27th  June 2008 and trial operation was carried out. The factory is in the process of privatization for operation on lease basis as per the policy of the government.
