Maharashtra keen to use GFRG panel for projects

Maharashtra has evinced interest in using GFRG (glass fibre reinforced gypsum) panels manufactured by FRBL (FACT-RCF Building Products Ltd), Kochi for its upcoming developmental projects.

An assurance in this regard was given by the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis during a recent meeting with Jaiveer Srivastava- CMD (FACT) & Chairman (FRBL), CP Dinesh-MD (FRBL) and other senior officials.

According to Srivastava, the Maharashtra Government has assured all possible help to popularise the GFRG (Glass Fibre Re-inforced Gypsum) panels manufactured by FRBL. The government has also shown interest in placing an order on FRBL for a pilot project of the proposed Nagpur Housing Project.

The FACT team met the Chief Minister and requested him to consider FRBL on a nominated basis, for the various upcoming projects in Maharashtra.

The FACT delegation also made a presentation and technical discussions on GFRG panels, which are useful for rapid construction projects at affordable prices, besides being environmental friendly.

For a direct appraisal of FRBL’s capabilities, the Secretary to Chief Minister and other senior officials of Maharashtra Government would be visiting the FRBL sites and facilities by next week.
