The company manufactures optical fibre cables at its Goa plant and at Chennai through its subsidiary HTL Limited.
In order to reduce the input cost and overcome the 'worldwide shortage' of fibre supply, the Telangana facility, for which the foundation stone was laid today, is being set up as a backward integration of optical fibre cable manufacturing, the company said in a statement.
The facility is expected to produce 6.4 million fibre kilometres per annum.
The project cost is estimated to be Rs 260 crore and it will commence production from April next year.
