New Delhi [India], February 18 (ANI/BusinessWire India): As per the Economic Survey released by the finance ministry, the performance of the steel industry is pivotal to the growth of the economy. India's crude steel production increased 25 per cent year-on-year to 66.91 million tonne during April-October period of 2021-22 and during the period, the country's output of finished steel registered a year-on-year (y-o-y) growth of 28.9 per cent to 62.37 MT, while the consumption of the same grew 25 per cent to 57.39 MT.
Says Founder and President FIRST Construction Council, Pratap Padode, "The steel story for India has a long way to go as far as our per capita consumption goes which stands at 75 kgs versus the global average of 229 kg. The National Steel Policy, 2017 envisages 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' philosophy where the entire demand of steel and high-grade automotive steel, electrical steel, special steel and alloys would be met domestically. and aims at increasing the per capita consumption of steel to 160 kg by 2030-31. The Issuance of Steel and Steel Products Quality Control Order for compulsory BIS certification for 145 Iron and Steel Products, the inclusion of 'specialty steel' under the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme recently, the Steel Scrap Recycling Policy, 2019, and the Steel Import Monitoring System (SIMS), an online platform for advance registration of intended imports of steel are new developments on the path to strengthening steel."
