Khurja is a small city in the Bulandshahr District of Uttar Pradesh. It is often called as 'The Ceramics City' with its skyline dotted with chimneys. The industry manufactures products like tableware (crockery), sanitary-ware, insulators, hospital ware, chemical porcelain, electro ceramics, kiln furniture, decorative wares, toys and figurines. These are exported worldwide and some are distributed across India.
CGCRI (Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute) has been continuously providing testing and technical facilities to the units for their upliftment. It works independently and is serving adequately for the growth of the industry.
