MRPL expansion hit by land row

MRPL expansion hit by land row

Persons displaced by Mangalore Special Economic Zone Ltd (MSEZL) have blocked roads demanding better compensation, which has led to stalling of work at MRPL expansion projected even though the company is not part of the SEZ, company sources said.

MRPL is expanding refining capacity from 11.82 million tonnes per annum to 15 million tonnes by January 2012 but around 16,000-17,000 labourers are not been allowed to enter project site because of the road blockage.

Work on the expansion project had come to a standstill since last week.
