Rudrapur, Feb 23 (UNI) Home-grown FMCG major Dabur India Ltd (DIL) plans to double its turnover in the next two years in this excise-free zone facility in Uttaranchal by expanding production capacity and introducing new products.

Dabur, which has 10 manufacturing units in India, is also planning to set up a new plant in Sikkim or North East to cater to Eastern India.
