Bharat Aluminium Company (BALCO), Korba (Chhattisgarh)
BALCO (Bharat Aluminium Company Limited) is India’s iconic aluminium producer and was conceived as a temple of modern India. It is owned 49% by the Government of India and 51% by Vedanta Limited. BALCO operates a 0.57 MTPA aluminium smelter in Korba, Chhattisgarh. It is widely acclaimed as one of India’s greatest disinvestment and privatisation success stories. The company has seen approximately a growth of roughly 6 times since the government divested a 51% stake. From 100 KTPA (kilo tons per annum) in FY 01 to 345 KTPA in FY05 to 575 KTPA in FY20, the company has deployed world-class operational efficiencies to clock this unprecedented quantum growth.
