A semi-porous soil pad is prepared as a salt pan and worked upon to make it stable and attain high pH level.
Salt water (brine) from the Sambhar lake is collected in the pans and then followed up with sub-soil brine. This process of feeding is repeated thrice.
The unique algae present in the water starts giving the salt collected in the pans its pink colour, naturally enriches it with iodine and adds to its pH level.
The salt crystals are harvested from the pans and sundried for 9-12 months, to remove the excess moisture content from the salt.
Finally, we get the Kshaar Lake salt in crystalline form and is sent to the plant to be packed in bags.
