NALCO will start an aluminium smelter plant in the state soon as a coal block is allocated for it in a location with adequate bauxite deposits in the neighbourhood."
He said NALCO will also establish a 20 MW solar power plant in Agar-Malwa district for which land will be allocated by the state government.
