Wednesday, 18 March 2020 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Union Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has informed that the Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) will commence operations from the Paradip Port for exports soon.

The Union Minister also said the number of containerized shipments has increased for catering to smaller sized export orders.

The SAIL has exported various products to new international markets. Some of the initiatives taken towards higher customer satisfaction for export markets include commencement of exports from the Paradip Port, he said.

During 2018-19, saleable steel sales were 14.11 million tonnes and the quantum during the current financial year 2019-20 till Dec was about 10.7 MT, which is a growth of about 7.7% over CPLY.

SAIL has made efforts to improve customer services through introduction of new brands of reinforcement Bars & Parallel Flanged Structurals, Digital Payment Methods, Door-delivery, Incentivisation of local MSMEs around its Plants etc.

The Minister was replying to a question in the Lok Sabha. He said that the production of iron ore in the country is sufficient to meet the current demand of iron ore by domestic steel industry.

Besides, the RINL regularly supplies steel products to many MSME units and is giving emphasis and thrust on exports, he said.
