Industries of Nagaland


                Nagaland is located in the Northeast of India. The state is surrounded by Myanmar in the east, Arunachal Pradesh in the north, Assam in the west and Manipur in the south.

                 Nagaland has around 600 million metric tonnes (MT) of crude oil and more than 20 million tonnes (MT) of hydrocarbon reserves, which are unexploited. Moreover, the state has 315 MT of coal reserves and 1,038 MT of limestone reserves.

              Nagaland's estimated hydropower generation potential is 1,574 megawatt (MW), while the installed capacity is 53.32 MW as of June 2014, presenting huge investment opportunities.

            The agro-climatic conditions in Nagaland provide commercial opportunities for floriculture and horticulture. The state has 650 indigenous species of medicinal and aromatic plants. Honey production in the state stood at 380 MT during 2012 and is expected to reach 1,000 MT by the end of the 12th Five Year Plan period. 

             The Cement produced from the MCP Wazeho of 43 Grade O.P.C. which is the second highest grade in India. Mini Cement Plant was set up at Wazeho based on the Limestone deposits, with a total proven reserve of 3.2 million tonnes (50TPD Mini Cement Plant requires a minimum proved reserve of 0.65 million tonnes). The limestone found at Wazeho is of high grade quality having CaO percentage up to 54.

   NPPC was incorporated in 1971 as a joint venture between Government of Nagaland (GoN) and Hindustan Paper Corporation Limited (A Government of India Enterprise) to manufacture writing, printing and Kraft paper with an installed capacity of 100 tpd at Tuli, Dist. Mokokchung, Nagaland; around 05 KM from the Assam – Nagaland border.

   The production activities of NPPC were suspended from October 1992 due to continued operating losses.

   NPPC is being revived with an estimated cost of '489 Cr in the 1st phase and '190 Cr in the second. GOI approved the revival on 4th June 2013.
