Tata Chemicals
Mithapur Works  62 A1

The Saurhastra region posses two important raw materials viz. salt & lime stone, which are vitally essential for the 
manufacture of soda ash & caustic soda. The demand for soda ash is increasing rapidly. Glassware of all types, soap, pulp 
and paper, detergents, textiles, drugs and petroleum products are some of the industries that require soda ash in their 
manufacture. Tata Chemicals Ltd is important among the factories engaged in manufacturing chemicals in the district. The 
original concern named Okha Salt works Ltd, established in 1927, was taken over by Tata Chemicals Ltd in 1939. The works are
situated at Mithapur near Port Okha at the extreme tip of the district of Saurahastra. The works are planned on an ambitious
scale with a view to supplying a large part of Indian requirements of soda ash and other chemicals and an area of 6000 acres.
Salt & residual liquor left after its separation from sea water known as bitterns form the basic raw materials from which a 
variety of chemicals are manufactured. In 1965-66 it employed 2627 persons. The products manufactured included salt, soda 
ash, caustic soda, sodium bicarbonate, benzene, hexachloride and alkalis marketed all over India iv
