Late Monday night, LafargeHolcim said the Competition Commission of India (CCI) has cleared the deck for one part of its India plans, which involves selling Lafarge’s cement business in the country. Mint reported that the deal to sell its entire cement portfolio could be valued at Rs 10,000 crore and that deal will now likely go through.

However, LafargeHolcim’s struggle with the regulatory red tape will not end there, as the company is still awaiting clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for its 2013 restructuring plan involving its units ACC Ltd and Ambuja Cement Ltd. The plan was submitted for FIPB approval in October 2013.
